Login For Price
Corn Meal Agar is a general-purpose medium used for the cultivation of fungi. Candida albicans is the etiological agent in Candidiasis, which ranges from a mild to severe skin, nail, and mucous membrane infections. One of the most important differentiating characteristics of C. albicans is its capacity to form chlamydospores on some media. Chlamydospore production is an important characteristic for diagnosis used in the identification of C. albicans. Corn Meal infusion provides nitrogen, vitamins, minerals and amino acids essential for growth. Bacteriological agar is the solidifying agent. Corn Meal is valuable for the morphologic differentiation of many yeast-like organisms. It suppresses the vegetative growth of many fungi and at the same time stimulates the sporulation. Corn Meal Agar allows Candida albicans to produce chlamydospores, which is one of the best criterions for identification. Walker and Huppert reported that the addition of 1% Tween 80 enhanced chlamydospore formation.
