Abstract

SUMMARY

A new medium (FTO), selective for Gram-positive bacilli from human skin, was developed, consisting of trypticase-soy, yeast-extract agar supplemented with (i) Tween 80 (0·5%) to support growth of lipophilic corynebacteria. (ii) Oil Red O (0·0005%) to distinguishlipophilic from non-lipophilic bacteria, and (iii) Furoxone (50 to 100 g./ml.) to inhibit growth of Gram-negative bacilli and Gram-positive cocci. Furoxone may be used to render other media selective for more fastidious diphtheroids.
