Colorex™ Salmonella Plus is a chromogenic media for the isolation and presumptive identification of Salmonella spp, S typhi, S.paratyphi and lactose positive Salmonella from foodstuffs. Any presumptive Salmonella spp. will produce a mauve colouration; other organisms will be blue or colourless in appearance. Cefsulodin is added as a selective agent to inhibit the growth of Pseudomonas and Aeromonas species. Any presumptive isolates must be confirmed using serological and biochemical techniques available to the laboratory. This product meets the requirements of ISO 6579:2002 standard.
