m-Green Yeast and Fungi Broth

m-Green Yeast and Fungi Broth is used for the detection of fungi in beverages in a laboratory setting. m-Green Yeast and Fungi Broth is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

m-Green Yeast and Fungi Broth is a relatively more complex formula compared to other media used for isolation of fungi and yeast. This formulation is rich in nutrients which allows for excellent fungal growth. Bacterial growth is inhibited by an acid pH.

Fungi have been found in potable water and on the inner surface of distribution system pipes. They can survive water treatment or they enter the system after treatment and remain viable.
