Cadmium Sulfate Fluoride Acridine Trypticase Agar (CFAT) has been formulated for the enhanced isolation of Actinomyces naeslundii and Actinomyces viscosus from mixed culture. Tryptic Soy and dextrose form the nutritive base of this medium, which is supplemented with cadmium sulfate, sodium flouride and neutral acriflavine to enhance the isolation of A. naeslundii and A. viscosus. Colonies of Actinomyces spp.are cream to slightly greenish in color, entire, convex or raised and opaque on this medium. This medium is prepared, dispensed and packaged under oxygen-free conditions to prevent the formation of oxidized products prior to use.
