Potato dextrose agar (PDA) medium (200g potato, 20g D-glucose, 15 g agar, 1000 ml deionized water) was used for isolating and culturing endophytic fungi.
Using an ethanol dipped and flamed forceps these discs were aseptically placed over nutrient agar plates for testing of the antibacterial activity and over potato dextrose agar for testing of the antifungal activity with the respective bacterial and fungal test organisms (Srinivasan 2001).
Lab M products for culturing these organisms include: Yeast Extract Dextrose Chloramphenicol Agar for the isolation of yeasts and moulds in milk and milk products; Wort Agar and Broth for testing butter; and, Oxytetracycline Glucose Yeast Extract Agar, Potato Dextrose Agar and Rose Bengal Chloramphenicol Agar for use in a wide range of food types.
Subculture and maintenance of Microorganism The strains were subcultured on Potato dextrose agar slants and incubated for 72 h at 30[degrees]C.
Bacterial cultures were maintained on Nutrient agar slants and the fungus on Potato dextrose agar slants, both at 6-8[degrees]C Preparation of inoculum and in vitro testing of samples Prior to the in vitro testing, the cultures were transferred into McCartney bottles containing 5ml of prepared Brain-Heart Infusion broth.
Potato dextrose agar (PDA), nutrient agar (NA), and corn meal agar (CMA) served as the substrate to express the mold from the seeds.
