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 organisms. 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: EMB Levine Agar

EMB is a versatile selective medium for the detection and isolation of Gram negative bacteria in clinical and nonclinical samples.
