pH value - 5.6 (48 g/l, H₂O, 22 °C) (after autoclaving); Solubility - 48 g/l

MEA has a high carbohydrate and protein content, making it an ideal medium for the growth of fungi and yeasts. It is often used to isolate and identify fungal species, as well as to test the effectiveness of antifungal agents.

To prepare MEA, the dehydrated medium is typically mixed with water and heated to dissolve the ingredients. The medium is then sterilized by autoclaving and poured into sterile Petri dishes, where it solidifies. The medium can also be used in liquid form for the growth of fungi and yeasts in suspension.

Millipore is a subsidiary of Merck KGaA and produces high-quality culture media for microbiology applications. The company offers a range of culture media products, including dehydrated, ready-to-use, and chromogenic media,
