R2A is a low-nutrient agar designed to cultivate organisms from low nutrient
environments (oligotrophs) such as purified water systems.  It is available
from BD Bioscience (1-800-638-8663).  The one drawback to using R2A is that
the incubation period is generally longer than higher nutrient media such as
Plate Count Agar.
