  • Description

    Salmonella species are ubiquitous in the environment. These enter the gastrointestinal tract of animals due to consumption of contaminated feed. Stringent animal husbandry practices are used in the meat (food) industry and inedible raw materials are recycled and discarded. Thus the organisms are further returned to the environment and stay in the global food chain. Eggshell and its contents are usually sterile at the time of oviposition. Subsequently it gets contaminated on contact with the nest, the floor and litter of other birds. Salmonella species are usually the causative agents of a self-limiting gastroenteritis. In some cases they may also cause typhoid fever. Salmonella contamination is most frequently encountered in the poultry industry. Brilliant Green Sulpha Agar is used for the selective isolation and detection of Salmonella species in foods especially from eggs and egg products. Brilliant Green Agar was first formulated by Kristensen, Lester and Jargens. This was further modified by Osborne and Stokes by the addition of 0.1% sodium sulphapyridine to the original formulation. This addition helped to increase the selective properties of the medium. Colonies of Salmonella may sometimes vary from red to pink to white depending upon the time and length of incubation and the strain of Salmonella. Do not autoclave the medium for more than 15 minutes as it decreases the selectivity of the medium
