OGYE Agar Base

Intended Use

OGYE Agar Base is for use with the antimicrobial agent, oxytetracycline, in isolating and enumerating yeasts and molds in foods.

Summary and Explanation

Acidified agar may be used for enumerating yeasts and molds in foods and dairy products. However, in some cases, antimicrobics better suppress bacterial growth and improve recovery
of yeasts and molds.1,2
Mossel et al.3,4 described Oxytetracycline-Glucose Yeast Extract (OGYE or OGY) Agar for selectively isolating and enumerating yeasts and molds in foods. Mossel et al. demonstrated
improved recovery compared to acidified agar media.
OGYE Agar is specified as a standard methods medium for use with dairy products.1

Principles of the Procedure

OGYE Agar Base contains yeast extract to supply B-complex vitamins which stimulate growth. Dextrose is the carbon energy source. Agar is the solidifying agent. The addition of oxytetracycline inhibits the growth of bacteria.
