InTray™ SDA + PVG
Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) is recommended in the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) for use in performing total combined mold and yeast counts (Microbial Limits Tests). InTray™ SDA and InTray™ SDA + PVG are general-purpose microbiology devices that allow for simultaneous growth and observation of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi, including yeasts and dermatophytes. The InTray™ SDA 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 in the InTray™ SDA + PVG, for use in samples with suspected high levels of bacterial contamination. For isolation of fungi from potentially contaminated specimens, best practice suggests the selective InTray™ SDA + PVG should be run in parallel with the non-selective InTray™ SDA.
