General description

GranuCult® prime SABOURAUD-2% dextrose broth (According to harm. EP/USP/JP) is used for the cultivation and isolation of yeasts and molds as well as the absence test for Candida albicans. The high concentration of dextrose, in addition to the low pH, promotes the growth, the formation of spores (Conidia and Sporangia), and the formation of pigments of yeasts and molds. It also inhibits the growth of bacteria.

Application

GranuCult® prime SABOURAUD-2% dextrose broth is suitable for the cultivation of dermatophytes, yeasts, and molds. It can also be used for sterility testing and the determination of the fungi-static activity of pharmaceutical and cosmetical products.

Features and Benefits

  • GranuCult® offers superior granulated culture media
  • 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 allows many supplements to be included, with no need to add these separately
