Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) is recommended in the United State Pharmocopoeia (USP) for use in performing total combined mold and yeast counts (Microbial Limits Tests). InTray SAB+PVG prepared plated culture media are general-purpose microbiology devices that allow for simultaneous growth and observation of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi, including yeasts and dermatophytes.
For isolation of fungi from potentially contaminated specimens, best practice suggests InTray SAB+PVG should be run in parallel with the non-selective InTray SAB-FungID.
InTray SAB+PVG is slightly inhibitory against bacteria and is designed for sampling a large spectrum of fungal growth. Bacterial inhibition is further enhanced with the introduction of the antibiotics Polymyxin B, Vancomycin and Gentamicin – which is used for samples with suspected high levels of bacterial contamination.
|Time to Result||
Result can be obtained within as little as 18-48 hours (7-14 days for Trichophyton).
