Evaluation of PPLO, A7B, E, and NYC agar media for the isolation of Ureaplasma urealyticum and Mycoplasma species from the genital tract.

Abstract

Four agar media (PPLO, NYC, A7B, and E) which are commonly used for the isolation of urogenital tract Mycoplasma species and Ureaplasma urealyticum were compared by culturing swabs of the endocervix of 334 pregnant women on all four media.
