Rapid Salmonella Confirmation and Screening From Selective Agar
The isolation and identification of Salmonella spp., using traditional techniques can take as long as five days, due to the need to grow the organism prior to identification by serological and biochemical techniques.
Microscreen® Salmonella offers a rapid alternative to these identification methods. Suspect colonies grown on both traditional and chromogenic isolation media may be tested directly providing and early presumptive confirmation of the presence of Salmonella prior to biochemical identification.
The test has a very high specificity and a high negative predictive value making it ideal for testing food, clinical, environmental and veterinary samples. The total test time is 2 minutes when testing colonies from selective agar media.
Microgen Bioproducts offers a wide range of products for detection and identification of micro-organisms isolated from food and clinical veterinary samples.
