Salmonella are gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, non-sporulating, motile rods in the family Enterobacteriaceae.
They are widely distributed in animals affecting mainly the stomach and the intestines. These organisms are difficult to differentiate biochemically from Escherichia coli. Leifsons Selenite Medium and Kauffmanns Modified Tetrathionate Medium have been widely used as enrichment medium for the isolation of Salmonella. Selenite Medium used for enrichment of Salmonella inhibits E. coli but allows growth of Proteus and Enterobacter. To overcome this difficulty, Strokes and Osborne developed a more selective medium by adding brilliant green and sodium taurocholate to the Selenite Medium and showed that it was superior to the Selenite Medium for isolating Salmonella in patients with gastroenteritis and similar diseases.
