This medium was designed for the separation of anaerobes from the specimens which are suspected to be contaminated with aerobes. On this medium, almost all anaerobes including Bacteriodes, Fusobacterium, Actinomyces, Peptococcus, Peptostreptococcus, Veillonella and Clostridium grow well, while many aerobes do not. The selectivity of this medium is based on the fact that anaerobes are resistant to gentamicin but aerobes are not.
