We are currently monitoring our controlled environments with both TSA
and Sab-Dex. We've been using both media types for about a year and
we really haven't seen much of anything on the Sab-Dex. My thoughts
are to discontinue use of the Sab-Dex and monitor the TSA at 30-35 C
and then 20-25 C. (The alternative would be to decrease the frequency
of monitoring for fungi.)
Does anyone know of any published data indicating that this is an
acceptable practice? I would appreciate any information, or if you
could point me in the right direction.
