DescriptionBrain Heart Infusion (BHI) Agar has proved to be effective in the cultivation of a wide variety of microorganisms, including many types of pathogens. BHI Agar is currently recommended as a general medium for aerobic bacteria and for the primary recovery of fungi from clinical specimens. BHI Agar, with 10% Sheep Blood can be used to isolate systemic fungi that may grow poorly on nonenriched media. A high recovery rate for Histoplasma capsulatum can be obtained with the addition of horse blood to the medium.
