An investigation was carried out on the efficacy of the combination of Human urine and acha extract as a component in the formulation of a new bacterial medium called FACO-MEDIUM. The medium was suitable for the growth and development of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. Three different quantities (300g, 200g and 150g) of the combination of urine and achaextract was used. The 200g quantity supported bacterial growth and development more. Nutrient Agar (NA) and Blood Agar (BA) were used as control, being conventional bacteria media. The FACO-Agar was observed to show a rapid growth of Brucellasp, Streptococcus pneumonia, Straphylococcusaureusand Escherichia coli , when compared to both NA and BA. Proximate analysis was carried out on the FACO-Agar formulation. The medium showed rich proximate content which makes it a suitable medium for the growth, identification and characterization of bacteria. The explicit methods of formulation are discussed.
