Lab M media for monitoring fungi in foods

Fungal spoilage of food remains an important economic issue, and at the same time the production of mycotoxins by some of the organisms responsible can also present a health challenge. Monitoring and subsequent disposal of contaminated food therefore has an important role. Designed for this task, Lab M’s range of microbiological culture media includes both Rose Bengal Chloramphenicol Agar and Dermatophyte Test Medium.
