Yeast and Mold Agar is recommended for the isolation and maintenance of yeasts and molds. This medium can also be used for the detection of wild yeasts in beer. Yeast and Mold Agar is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

Yeast and Mold Agar is prepared according to the formulation published by Wickerham and was formulated for the selective isolation of yeasts from mixed cultures containing bacteria and molds. The selectivity of this medium may be enhanced through acidification or through addition of selective agents. Yeast and Mold Agar should be sterilized without pH adjustment and sterile acid added to the medium cooled to 45 - 50°C. Acidified Yeast and Mold Agar should not be heated. Antibiotics may be aseptically added to sterile media. Other fungistatic materials may also be added to Yeast and Mold Agar to eliminate molds and permit enumeration of yeasts to mixed populations.
