Wilson and Blair’s BBS Agar formulated by Wilson and Blair is recommended for isolating Salmonella species especially Salmonella Typhi from clinical specimens. The selective reagent formulation is a modification of the bismuth sulphite reagent described by Hajna and Perry. This medium is particularly valuable for the isolation of S. Typhi. The medium is highly selective for Salmonellae, being inhibitory to coliforms, Proteus; occasional strains of coliforms grow to form dull green or brown colonies, but without a surrounding metallic sheen.
Salmonella is a genus of gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae – commonly implicated in foodborne illness and the causative agent of typhoid and paratyphoid fever. Salmonella species have been isolated from humans and animals.
