General description

Sabouraud Dextrose Agar contains peptones to provide nitrogen, vitamins, and amino acids. The relatively high concentration of glucose (dextrose), in addition to the low pH, promotes the growth and the formation of spores (Conidia and Sporangia) and pigments of yeasts and molds. The low pH further inhibits the growth of bacteria. Agar is the solidifying agent.


Sabouraud Dextrose Agar is suitable for the cultivation of yeasts and molds from different materials and for usage as a reference medium during performance testing of culture media.

Features and Benefits

  • Safe and sustainable due to reduced risks associated with fine dust and toxic substance inhalation, resulting in a safer work environment.
  • Excellent wettability, solubility, and free flowing properties
  • Convenient, with minimal component separation and clumping, even under warm or humid conditions
  • High batch-to-batch reproducibility
  • Prolonged shelf life of up to five years
  • High number of test strains exceeding all regulatory demands
  • Granulation technology allowing many supplements to be included, with no need to add these separately


We offer two media types: the superior granulated GranuCult® and the cost-efficient powdered NutriSelect® culture media, depending on your needs.
The designations basic, plus, or prime are added to indicate the quality control level, from basic quality control to standard QC plus to prime for full regulatory compliance.
