Cetrimide agar is recommended for the selective isolation and identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The use of cetrimide (N-Cetyl-N,N,N-trimethyl ammonium bromide) largely inhibits the growth of the accompanying microbial flora minimizes interference with the growth of P. aeruginosa. This medium does not inhibit the pigment production of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
