CORN MEAL AGAR
Corn Meal Agar is a general-purpose medium for the cultivation of fungi, in particular for the production of chlamydospores by Candida albicans. In this medium, Corn Meal Infusion provides all the nutrients required for fungal growth and Agar is the gelifying agent. The medium can be supplemented with Tween 80 to enhance chlamydospore formation. The addition of Glucose enhances the chromogenesis of Trychophyton spp, while Tryptan Blue provides a contrasting background that facilitates the observation of morphological features.
