An emulsion overlay plating technique was developed for the rapid and selective isolation of yeast that assimilate water immiscible substrates. The plating medium contains a defined enrichment broth and an Aniline blue agar base. Growth is easily detected by colony dye concentration, decolorization zones around colonies and fluorescence of colonies under long wave UV light.
