Product Description: 

RAPPAPORT  VASSILIADIS SALMONELLA ENRICHMENT MEDIA is used for enrichment and selective isolation of Salmonella species.  It conforms to harmonized USP/EP/JP requirements. Rappaport et al. formulated an enrichment medium for Salmonella species.that was modified by Vassiliadis et al. Rappaport 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 source which has been reported to enhance the growth of salmonella species. Rappaport Vassiliadis Salmonella Enrichment Media is very hygroscopic 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 Salmonella are recovered
