The plates are made under the standard protocol with an antibiotic of choice. Nystatin can be added to either broth or agar solutions at a final concentration of 8ug/ml. Because this a very small amount, it is recommended a 1000X stock solution be made. There are research papers to suggest this is a sufficient concentration to kill most common fungi and yeast. The experiment was replicated at Missouri Western with success.
