Sabouraud Dextrose Broth is used for the cultivation of fungi from sterile and non-sterile products. Sabouraud Dextrose Broth conforms to Harmonized USP/EP/JP Requirements and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

A medium recommended by the Harmonized Pharmacopoeia for the enrichment of Candida albicans from non-sterile samples and fungal test strain cultivation. Conforms to USP/EP/JP performance specifications. The peptones and dextrose provide a nutritious base for luxuriant fungal growth and the acidic pH affords selectivity against bacteria. Due to the high carbohydrate content and low pH this medium is highly sensitive to overheating. According to the Harmonized Pharmacopoeia, Sabouraud Dextrose Broth is used as an enrichment broth, with subculture performed onto Sabouraud Dextrose Agar.
