Animal Health

Cattle, Swine, Poultry

Rapid detection of viable Salmonella spp


The principle of the Salmonella spp test is the identification of a cell viability molecular marker intrinsic, specific for 12 main serotypes of Salmonella enteric spp, considered to be of interest to human and animal health.


Salmonella spp is one of the most widely distributed microorganisms in nature, with man and animals being its main natural reservoirs, with the occurrence of regional serotypes, recognized as salmonellosis, and considered as one of the main agents involved in outbreaks of food origin in different countries.

The increase in the incidence of salmonellosis caused by contaminated food demonstrates that, at present, despite the technological advances achieved, this problem still occurs worldwide.

Birds and cattle are responsible for the greatest dissemination of this pathogenic agent. The wide distribution of Salmonella spp among animals, the existence of asymptomatic carriers and their permanence in the environment and in food contribute to this microorganism assuming a role of great relevance in world public health.
