Kimmig Fungi HiVeg™ Agar Base is recommended for the cultivation, isolation and identification of fungi. Hiveg medium is prepared as described by Kimmig and Rieth for cultivation, isolation, identification and strain preservation of fungi. Fungi identification is usually carried out by examining the hyphae or spores formed by fungi on the medium plates. This medium promotes the development of growth forms, which are used as important characteristic criteria in identification. This medium is prepared by replacing animal peptones with vegetable defined peptones to avoid BSE/TSE/GMO risk.
