Yeast Mold Agar is a medium used for the isolation and cultivation of yeast and molds. Peptone and Malt extract provides the carbon, protein and nutrient sources required for the growth of microorganisms. Malt extract is particularly suitable for yeasts and molds as it contains a high concentration of maltose (39 - 42%) and other saccharides as energy sources. Dextrose is the fermentable carbohydrate providing carbon and energy. Bacteriological agar is the solidifying agent. The high dextrose concentration and acidic pH make this medium selective for fungi.
