Thirty two known strains of Candida species were used for evaluation of glucose, serine, ornithine, methionine, GSOM medium and its comparison with Lee's medium for the production of yeast and mycelial phase at different temperatures and on prolonged incubation. No mycelial form was observed when various Candida species in GSOM and Lee's medium were incubated at 25 degrees C up to 72 hours. Percentage of mycelial forming cells of Candida species were more in GSOM medium than Lee's medium in 48 hours at 37 degrees C. Among various species of Candida, albicans and C. parapsilosis showed maximum mycelium formation. GSOM medium can be used for growing Candida species particularly C. albicans in mycelial phase.
