m-Green Yeast and Fungi Broth is a relatively more complex formula compared to other media used for isolation of fungi and yeast. This formulation is rich in nutrients which allows for excellent fungal growth. Bacterial growth is inhibited by an acid pH.
Appearance Light greeen-beige, homogeneous free flowing powder
Solubility Blue to green, clear and complete. A slight precipitate may form
pH As Reported
Enzymatic Digest of Casein and Enzymatic Digest of Animal Tissue provide nitrogen, carbon, and amino acids in m- Green Yeast and Fungi Broth. Yeast Extract is the vitamin source. Dextrose is an energy source for metabolism of fungi. Potassium Phosphate is a buffering agent. Magnesium Sulfate, Thiamine, and Diastase (a mixture containing amylolytic (starch) enzymes) provide essential ions, minerals, and nutrients. Bromcresol Green is the pH indicator, facilitating visualization and counting of fungal colonies. The colonies are green due to diffusion of Bromcresol Green into the colonies. Acidic end products from colonies diffuse into the medium, further reducing the pH and causing the indicator to turn yellow (acid reaction) around the colonies.
