Urine culture in usual practice is done by inoculation of the sample separately onto blood agar and Mac-Conkey’s Medium. This practice of inoculation is not only costly but also requires more man-power. To reduce such cost and man-power, Cystline Lactose Electrolyte Deficient medium (with Andrade indicator) has been procured for inoculation of urine samples. But as this media is also costly, in present study as single medium having some combining properties of both blood agar and Mac-Conkey’s has been used.
