The Mueller Hinton formulation was originally developed as a simple, transparent agar medium for the cultivation of pathogenic Neisseria species. Other media were subsequently developed that replaced the use of Mueller Hinton Agar for the cultivation of pathogenic Neisseria species, but it became widely used in the determination of sulfonamide resistance of gonococci and other organisms. Mueller Hinton Agar is now used as a test medium for antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Mueller Hinton Agar with 5% sheep blood and Mueller Hinton Agar with Hemoglobin have been recommended for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae. HM infusion B from and acicase provide nitrogenous compounds, carbon, sulphur and other essential nutrients. Starch acts as a protective colloid against toxic substances present in the medium. Starch hydrolysis yields dextrose, which serves as a source of energy. These ingredients are selected for low thymine and thymidine content as determined by MIC values for Enterococcus faecalis with sulfamethoxazoletrimethoprim (SXT).
