What are the three common physical forms of media?
Then, what are the three physical states of media?
Growth media is most commonly prepared in three different physical forms: liquid (broth), semi-solid (deep), and solid (Petri dish and slant). Since all growth media contain nutrients, the major difference in these three forms is the amount of solidifying agent, agar, added to each mix.

These are classified into six types: (1) Basal media, (2) Enriched media, (3) Selective media, (4) Indicator media, (5) Transport media, and (6) Storage media. 1. BASAL MEDIA. Basal media are those that may be used for growth (culture) of bacteria that do not need enrichment of the media.
What are the different types of agar?
Types of agar plates
- Blood agar - contains blood cells from an animal (e.g. a sheep).
- Chocolate agar - this contains lysed blood cells, and is used for growing fastidious (fussy) respiratory bacteria.
- Neomycin agar - contains the antibiotic neomycin.
- Sabouraud agar - used for fungi.
