Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) Effect on Growth Malassezia Furfur and Aspergillus sp on Media
Keywords:Malassezia furfur; Aspergillus sp; Clove (Syzygium aromaticum).
Background: Malassezia furfur and Aspergillus sp are fungi associated with infection in humans. One of
the plants that can use as anti fungi is clove (Syzygium aromaticum).
Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine the growth barriers of Malassezia furfur and Aspergillus
sp on media with the addition of Clove Powder (Syzygium aromaticum).
Material and Method: The equipment used by cloves (Syzygium aromaticum) is a part of the reddish
green flower. The samples used in this study were Malassezia furfur and Aspergillus sp. Specimens planted
on Saboraud Dextrose Agar media with the addition of clove powder (Syzygium aromaticum) in various
Results: Malassezia furfur in media with clove powder concentration of 0%; 0.05%; 0.1% shows the
number of colonies 1330; 1135; 765. Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus on media
with clove powder concentration of 0%; 0.05%; 0.2% indicates colony diameter of 6.8 cm; 5 cm; 3.7 cm
(Aspergillus niger), 6.7 cm; 5 cm; 4.3 cm (Aspergillus flavus), 7 cm; 5 cm; 2.3 cm (Aspergillus fumigatus).
Conclusion: Media with Addition of Clove Powder (Syzygium aromaticum) can inhibit the growth of
Malassezia furfur and Aspergillus sp.
