DermAX is a 2-sided agar culture medium used to identify and isolate dermatophytes, yeasts and fungi. Both agar surfaces allow for optimum growth of fungi and provide information on the type of fungi with their medium selectivity.

Taplin agar

Standard medium for selective growth of dermatophytes. Chloramphenicol and gentamicin sulphate inhibit bacterial growth; cycloheximide suppresses the growth of fungi and pathogenic yeasts.
In the presence and following the growth of dermatophytes, the increase in pH causes a colour change in the Taplin agar from yellow-orange to red.

Malt agar

Medium for selective growth of yeasts and fungi. The low pH inhibits bacterial growth.

The DermAX dip slide culture is easy to handle and provides fast and conclusive results. It can also be used as a transport medium.
