- Selective for viable yeast and mold samples in food samples.
The inclusion of chloramphenicol in this medium suppresses bacterial growth, allowing molds, and yeasts to grow. The inhibition of spreading molds and the restriction of their colony size results in improved enumeration and detection. The reduced pH of DRBC (ISO) Agar increases the inhibition of yeasts by the rose-bengal. Pre-supplemented DRBC (ISO) Agar contains 0.1g per litre chloramphenicol in the agar base. This removes the need for supplementation and handling of the chloramphenicol.
