There are three species of Yersinia with unquestionable pathogenicity for humans Yersinia pestis, Yersinia psuedotuberculosis and Yersinia enterocolitica. Among these, Y. enterocolitica is usually associated with foodborne gastroenteritis. It is the most common species of Yersinia recovered from clinical specimens. The portal of entry in humans is the oral digestive route, with infection occurring in the terminal ileum. Yersinia Identification Broth Base is recommended for the identification of Yersinia from food and animal feeds by the ISO Committee.
Inoculate the test sample in PSB Broth and ITC Broth for enrichment. After incubation at 25?C for 2-3 days, inoculate onto Yersinia Selective Agar Base. Presumptive Yersinia colonies are confirmed biochemically by inoculating into Yersinia Identification Broth Base.
