OGYE Agar Base is used with oxytetracycline in the detection and isolation of yeasts and molds from foods in a laboratory setting. OGYE Agar Base is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
Mossel, Visser, and Mengerink described Oxytetracycline-Glucose Yeast Extract (OGYE) Agar for the detection and enumeration of yeasts and molds in foods and other specimens of sanitary significance. Mossel et al. described improved recovery of yeasts and molds compared to acidified agar. This medium is supplemented with oxytetracycline as a selective agent, rather than relying on the low pH of acidified agar to suppress bacterial growth. Acidified agar is commonly used for detection of yeasts and molds in foods and dairy products, and OGYE Agar Base provides an alternate medium.
