A rapid test for the confirmatory identification of presumptive Salmonella colonies from selective agar plates. The genus Salmonella consists of over 2,000 serotypes which can cause acute infectious gastroenteritis frequently associated with food poisoning. Since many Salmonella spp. infect domestic animals, either clinically or sub-clinically, cases of Salmonella food poisoning usually originate from animal sources. The rapid identification of Salmonella is not only vital for appropriate patient management but also for food manufacturers where prompt results minimise the delay associated with routine testing for Salmonella contamination. The detection and identification of Salmonella spp., using traditional techniques, usually requires identification by serological and biochemical techniques. Microgen Salmonella offers a rapid alternative to the traditional identification methods and detects Salmonella spp. including S. typhimurium and S. enteritidis. Microgen Salmonella…. · Has a very high specificity and a high positive predictive value making it ideal for testing food, clinical, environmental and veterinary samples. · Detects motile and non-motile strains. · Produces test results in 2 minutes. · Obtained 100% sensitivity in a food sample trial that compared Microgen Salmonella with conventional identification techniques thus confirming highly reliable detection of Salmonella.
