With Compact Dry YM yeasts and mould can be differentiated by colour development. The medium contains the chromogenic enzyme substrate X-Phos which turns blue with many yeasts. Moulds form fluffy colonies with a characteristic colour. Antibiotics inhibit the growth of bacteria. The Compact Dry YM allows a very good 3-dimension growth of yeast and mould. Compact Dry YM is AOAC approved.
