Side 1: CLED Agar with Polymyxin B (at 28,000 IU/L media)

CLED (cystine lactose electrolyte deficient) agar is a non-selective growth medium that is useful for the isolation and differentiation of urinary microorganisms. Incorporating polymyxin B into the CLED agar creates a selective medium for the growth of Enterococci, Staphylococci, Proteus and yeast while preventing the growth of most E. coli, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, and Enterobacter colonies. Mutant colonies of E. coli, Klebsiella, and Enterobacter can occasionally be observed as large mucoid colonies.

Side 2: MacConkey Agar

MacConkey agar is a selective and differential culture medium used to selectively isolate Gram-negative bacteria, which can be differentiated based on their ability to ferment lactose.
