YPD (YEPD) AGAR is a nutritionally rich medium for the growth of S. cerevisiae, containing dextrose, peptone, yeast extract and agar. Dextrose is the energy source. Yeast extract and peptone provide carbon, nitrogen, minerals, vitamins, trace ingredients and other essential growth nutrients which stimulate the growth of yeasts.
YPD Agar is used for routine growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for molecular biology studies.

|Alternate Names||Yeast Extract Peptone Dextrose Agar|
|Application Notes||YPD Agar is used for routine growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae for molecular biology studies.|
|Base Catalog Number||4001265|
|Formulation Details||Contents Per Liter: 20 g Peptone Y; 10 g Yeast Extract-Y; 20 g Dextrose; 17 g Agar-Y. Small quantities of biological buffers have been added for proper pH adjustment.|
|Grade||Molecular Biology Certified™|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Personal Protective Equipment Respiratory protection: Breathing apparatus only if aerosol or dust is formed. Hand protection: PVC or other plastic material gloves Skin and body protection: Usual safety precautions while handling the product will provide adequate protection against this potential effect. Eye protection: Safety glasses with side-shields Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice|
|pH||Acceptable pH range is 6.2 ± 0.3 at 25 °C|
|Preparation Method||Media Preparation: Reagents are tested and chosen for their ability to promote optimum growth of S. cerevisiae when combined in YPD Agar formulations. Chosen reagents are combined in the proper proportions according to the YPD Agar formulation and thoroughly blended for a uniform distribution. A sample of the blended formulation is used to prepare agar medium. The combinations are mixed to dissolve components and then autoclaved at 121 °C for 15 minutes.|
|Solubility||Soluble in Water (33.5 g/0.5 L).|
|Sterilization of Solutions||Combinations are mixed to dissolve components and then autoclaved at 121 °C for 15 minutes. Note: Autoclaving at higher temperatures or for longer periods will result in darkening of the sterile medium, (a darker color does not normally affect growth of cells, only the appearance of the sterile medium).|
|Typical Working Concentration||67 g/L|
|Usage Statement||Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use. For more information, please contact our customer service department.|
