Sabouraud Glucose with Antibiotics, also known as Medium C, is used for selective cultivation of yeasts and moulds, as per the British Pharmacopoeia. This medium is Carlier’s modification of the formulation described by Sabouraud, for the cultivation of fungi. The medium is used with antibiotics such as Chloramphenicol for the isolation of pathogenic fungi from materials containing large numbers of fungi or bacteria. Casein enzymic hydrolysate and peptic digest of animal tissue provide nitrogenous compounds. Glucose provides an energy source. Chloramphenicol inhibits a wide large of gram positive and gram-negative bacteria making the medium selective for fungi. The low pH favours fungal growth and inhibits contaminating bacteria from clinical specimens.
