CASO and Sabouraud-Glucose Agar: Any good ?
    #2443107 - 03/17/04 01:44 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I got hold of two packs of pre-mixed agar from Merck
Its one pack of CASO Agar = Casein-peptone Soymeal-peptone Agar (see http://service.merck.de/microbiology/tedisdata/prods/4978-1_05458_0500_5000.html )
and one pack of SABOURAUD-2 % Dextrose Agar (see http://service.merck.de/microbiology/tedisdata/prods/4985-1_07315_0500_5000.html ).

Are they any good for mushroom cultivation (actives and edibles) ?

Thanks in advance

Well. My investigations show that the CASO is not good. Maybe I will try and add some dextrose to it. The other one works, but due to lack of experience I can't compare them to any of the classical recipes.

Some more informations. Both are from the german chemical company Merck (inventors of Ecstasy iirc) and are labled "for microbiology"

Here is the list of contents

Tryptic soy agar (CASO)
Casein-peptone soymeal-peptone agar USP (whatever USP means)
40 gram (used for 1 litre of water) contains:
15 gram Peptone from casein
5 gram Peptone from soymeal
5 gram Sodium chloride
15 gram Agar-agar

----

SABOURAUD-2% glucose agar
47 gram (used for 1 litre of water) contains:
10 gram Peptone
20 gram D(+)-Glucose
17 gram Agar-agar

try and get some pics of the sabouraud cultures on here.

I can get my hands on some, but I don't have the infrastructure necessary to pull it off yet. Maybe some good pics would motivate?
