Lab M Limited

Fungal Media Range Suits Wide Variety of Foodstuffs

Lab M’s specialist range of culture media for the isolation of yeasts and moulds is tailored to ensuring the recovery of these organisms from a broad range of foodstuffs, providing the convenience of purchasing from a single supplier.

The most recent inclusions in Lab M’s range of more than 20 yeast and mould products are Dichloran Rose Bengal Chloramphenicol Agar (ISO) and Dichloran 18% Glycerol Agar (ISO). Both comply with the requirements of the relevant ISO standards and both products are supplied dehydrated as complete formulations. These are ready to prepare without the need for any additional antibiotic supplementation.

DRBC Agar(ISO) is used to enumerate viable yeasts and moulds in foodstuffs whose water activity is greater than 0.95, while DG18 Agar (ISO) is intended for food or animal feed products that have a water activity of 0.95 or less. Each medium has been carefully designed to balance the need to encourage growth of the selected organisms with the requirement to control growth enough to allow efficient colony counting.
