The culture medium complies with the recommendations of the APHA Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Appearance of Colonies
Wastewater (1998) and the United States Pharmacopeia XXVI (2003).
Mode of Action
The dyes contained in this medium inhibit the growth of many accompanying Gram-positive microorganisms. According to WELD (1952, 1953) and VOGEL and MOSES (1957), LEVINE EMB Agar can be used to identify Candida albicans in clinical speci-mens, if chlorotetracycline hydrochloride is added to inhibit the Colourless, "pin-point" colonies Coagulase-positive entire accompanying bacterial flora. LEVINE EMB Agar can also be utilized for the identification of coagulase-positive staphylo-cocci which grow characteristically as colourless "pin-point" "Spidery" - or "feathery" colonies and which show good agreement with the results of the coagulase test (MENOLASINO et al. 1960).

Experimental Procedure and Evaluation
Inoculate by thinly spreading the sample material on the surface
of the culture medium.
Incubation: 1-2 days at 35 °C aerobically.
To obtain a primary culture of Candida, incubate the plates containing chlorotetracycline in a 10 % carbon dioxide atmosphere (e.g. with Anaerocult® C or C mini).
