A comparison of several media, i.e., potato dextrose agar with olive oil (Oil-PDA), modified Dixon agar (mDIX) and variations of Leeming and Notman agar (LNA) for the isolation and growth of Malassezia and Candida species was examined. Since LNA supported the highest growth of Malassezia species its key components, i.e., ox bile, glycerol monostearate, glycerol and Tween 60, were added to CHROMagar Candida. All 7 species of Malassezia grew well on this modified medium (LN-CHROM) after… CONTINUE READING
