Specific Salmonella Detection with Lab M's New XLT4 Agar
It's often a challenge to identify Salmonella species in samples heavily contaminated with competing microbiological flora, so Lab M has added new Xylose Lysine Tergitol-4 (XLT4) Agar to its extensive range of products for salmonella isolation and identification.
Lab M's new XLT4 is a highly selective and very cost-effective medium for the specific detection and enhanced recovery of non-typhi Salmonella spp. from environmental, food and clinical samples. It enables labs to rapidly determine whether or not these pathogenic organisms are present, for effective monitoring even when faced with difficult materials such as faecally contaminated agricultural samples.
XLT4 Agar is part of Lab M's comprehensive and proven range of media for the isolation and culture of salmonellae. Offering a convenient choice of methodologies to fit individual laboratory testing requirements, the Lab M range supports the need to rapidly screen, isolate and identify salmonellae from a variety of sample types.
Lab M is known for the development and manufacture of culture media that meet the rigorous demands of microbiological testing. Through an ongoing programme of product development, the company continues to introduce new formulations, thereby helping users achieve their specific requirements.
