Nutrient Agar is used for the cultivation of non-fastidious microorganisms. The Beef Extract and Peptone supply a quantity of carbon, nitrogen and vitamins sufficient for the growth of most non-fastidious microor­ganisms (enteric bacteria, staphylococci). The APHA recommends the use of Nutrient Agar in the microbiological examination of water and dairy pro­ducts. These media can be used as bases to which different materials can be added such as; carbohydrates, salts, dyes, etc., in order to obtain a selective, differential and enriched media.

Nutrient Agar was the first media utilised in microbiology and can still be routinely used in the examination of water and foods for preparing stock cultures; for the prelimi­nary cultivation of a sample undergoing successive bacteriologi­cal examinations; and for the isolation of microorganisms from a pure culture.
