SS Agar was originally developed as a selective medium for the isolation of Salmonella and Shigella species. It was also developed to aid in the differentiation of lactose and non-lactose-fermenters from clinical specimens, suspected foods, and other such samples. SS Agar medium is recommended as differential and selective medium for the isolation of Salmonella and Shigella species from pathological specimens and suspected foodstuffs and for microbial limit test. Salmonella Shigella Agar is a modification of the Deoxycholate-Citrate Agar described by Leifson. It is designated as a moderately selective medium based upon the degree of inhibition of gram-positive microorganisms and Enterobacteriaceae other than Salmonella and Shigella spp.
