Yeast and mold display different colony morphology and color due to the chromogenic substrate present in the media. X-Phos is degraded by growing yeast presenting a blue coloration of the colony, yeast will appear as blue or cream colonies. Bacterial growth is inhibited by antibiotics. The head space in the Compact Dry™ plate allows mold to develop their characteristic filamentous shape due to growing mycelium.
