General description

BiGGY Agar (Nickerson Agar) is used for detection, selective isolation, differentiation and presumptive identification of Candida albicans and Candida tropicalis. This agar is a selective medium used for isolation and presumptive identification of Candida species by their ability to reduce sulphite to sulphide giving a brown to black colour.

Preparation Note

Suspend 45 g in 1 litre distilled water. Boil gently to dissolve the medium completely. DO NOT AUTOCLAVE. Overheating will destroy the selective properties. Disperse the flocculant precipitate formed by swirling prior to dispensing into plates.
