for selective enrichment & isolation broth for Salmonella species. RAPPAPORT   VASSILIADISSALMONELLA   ENRICHMENT   BROTH is   used   for   enrichment   and selective   isolation   of Salmonella species.   It   conforms   to   harmonized   USP/EP/JP   requirements.1,2,3Rappaport et  al.4formulated  an  enrichment  medium  for Salmonella species.that  was  modified  by Vassiliadis et  al.5Rappaport  Vassiliadis  Salmonella  Enrichment  Broth  medium  is  evaluated  as  an alternative  of  Rappaport-Vassiliadis  (RV)  Broth  where  Soya  Peptone  has  replaced  Enzymatic  Digest  of Casein  as  the  nitrogen  and  vitamin  sourcewhich  has been  reported  to  enhance  the  growth  of salmonellaspecies.6,7This  medium  is  veryhygroscopic  and  must  be  protected  from  moisture. Sodium chloride  maintains  the osmotic  balance  in  the  medium.  The  low  pH  of  the  medium,  combined  with  the  presence  of  Malachite green and Magnesium chloride raises the osmotic pressure and Potassium dihydrogen phosphate acts as a  buffer,  selective  for  the  highly  resistant Salmonella species.  Malachite  green  is  inhibitory  to  organisms other  than Salmonella sp.  Novobiocin  is  added  as  a  selective  agent. When  Rappaport  Vassiliadis Salmonella Enrichment Broth medium is combined with direct culture and Selenite enrichment, 98.9% of Salmonellaare recovered
