A new medium for the production of chlamydoconidia by Candida albicans

Mycopathologia. 1986 Aug;95(2):73-5. doi: 10.1007/BF00437163.


Several isolates of Candida albicans were tested for production of chlamydoconidia and metabolic changes when grown on several different solid and liquid media. A liquid medium, consisting solely of sterilized skimmed milk and a solid medium containing processed cheese stimulated more rapid and greater production of chlamydoconidia than the corn meal agar and the other media tested.
