Abstract: Thirty-four recent isolates of Candida albicans from clinical material were cultured on glutinous rice agar at 21 pH values ranging from 2.2 to 11.9. After incubation at 25°C all isolates produced chlamydospores on this medium at pH values from 6.6 to 8.0 with an optimum pH of 7.1. Nineteen stock cultures and all recent isolates of Candida albicans were used to compare the new glutinous rice agar with 9 other culture media recommended for chlamydospore formation. The results indicated that the new medium was superior in terms of (1) economy, (2) rapid production of chlamydospores, (3) transparency and (4) ease of investigation by direct microscopic examination. © 1971 Dr. W.
