Fungi maintain their typical cultural appearance and may thus be readily identified according to the standard macroscopic characteristics. Infections caused by Candida spp. are diverse, ranging from superficial and local to deep-seated and disseminated. Candida albicans and Candida glabrata comprise 70-80% of yeast isolates recovered from patients with invasive disease. This culture media, also available in powder form, has applications in environmental monitoring and sterility testing, enabling corrective measures to be implemented rapidly if unacceptable levels of microbial loading indicate lapses in process control.
