Pinnacle™ Pre-Poured Plates Improve Accuracy of Salmonella Confirmation
As evidenced by a number of recent outbreaks and food recalls, there remains a need for constant vigilance in testing for Salmonella in foodstuffs.
Lab M’s new Pinnacle™ Salmonella ABC pre-poured plates are designed for the isolation of salmonellae from food samples and are based on Lab M’s established Harlequin™ Salmonella ABC medium.
Performance is improved by increased selectivity against competitive flora, such as E. coli, and improved recovery of Salmonella. The medium also possesses an enhanced dual chromogen system that ensures colonies of Salmonella are always green while non-target organisms appear black or colourless, for clear differentiation. This patented chromogenic system reduces the risk of missing organisms that are present only in low numbers and results in fewer false positives.
