Phyto Proteose Agar Medium is a phytopathological media, it's a non selective medium, when added to antibiotics it's employed to detect several Pseudomonas species, used also to subculture suspected isolates.
There are two major types of growth media those used for cell culture , which use specific cell types derived from plants or animals, and microbiological culture, which are used for growing microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeast. The most common growth media for microorganisms are nutrient broths and agar plates with antibiotics; specialized media are sometimes required for microorganism and cell culture growth.
