A latex agglutination confirmation test for the presence of Salmonella spp on solid media from clinical and food samples. Detects motile and non motile strains. Reduces testing delays associated with conventional methods. The Salmonella latex agglutination kit offers a rapid alternative to the traditional identification methods and detects a large range of Salmonella species including. S.typhimurium, S.enteritidis, S.virchow, S.newport, S.infantis, S.anatum, and various others belonging to serogroups B, C1, C2, C3, D1 and E1.
The genus Salmonella consists of >2000 serotypes. Can cause acute infectious enteritis frequently associated with food poisoning. Many Salmonella species infect domestic animals clinically or sub-clinically therefore many cases of Salmonella food poisoning originate from animal sources. In contrast S.typhiand S.paratyphionly infect humans and cause enteric fever. Salmonella are usually present in samples in low numbers therefore enrichment or selective media are used to promote their growth eg RV, SC, M- broth
