Drigalski agar is a general purpose selective medium. It is less selective than 
MacConkey agar, thus Enterococci may be seen. Drigalski agar is quite popular in
South-Western Sweden. If it used together with blood agar one may be able to 
judge if Staphylococci, E.coli, Proteus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, etc. are 
present in the clinical sample.
