Detection of Salmonella spp.

  • 1 Qualitative process control with CRM-SAG

  • Best Practice

    The single strain CRM-SAG Salmonella agona is an atypical food related Salmonella. Salmonella agona is lactose positive. This Salmonella can be found in food products. If you want to avoid cross contamination, choose a not food related Salmonella like Salmonella tranaroa (RM-STRAN) or Salmonella abaetetuba (RM-SABAE)

    Process control detection method

    1. Use a quantitative reference material (CRM-SAG) with a known number of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Agona.
    2. Defrost the material at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    3. Mix well before use.
    4. In the case of qualitative operations the contamination level of the reference material (CRM-SAG) must be representative of the limit of detection.
    5. At an average contamination level of 5 cfu per control sample, the probability of using a coincidentally uninfected (negative) sample according to the Poisson spread is less than 1%.
    6. Incubate at (36 ± 2) °C for (24 ± 3) h.
    7. Determine the absence or presence of the microorganism and register your finding in a qualitative control chart.
    8. The characteristic reaction is: Colonies with black centre and a lightly transparent zone of reddish colour due to the colour change of the medium.

  • 2 Qualitative process control with CRM-SE

  • Best Practice

    The single strain CRM-SE Salmonella enteritidis is a typical food related Salmonella. This Salmonella can be found in food products. If you want to avoid cross contamination, choose a not food related Salmonella like Salmonella tranaroa (RM-STRAN) or Salmonella abaetetuba (RM-SABAE)

    Process control detection method

    1. Use a quantitative reference material (CRM-SE) with a known number of Salmonella enteritica subsp. enterica serotype Enteritidis.

    Process control detection method

    1. Use a quantitative reference material (RM-SABAE) with a known number of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Abaetetuba.
    2. Defrost the material at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    3. Mix well before use.
    4. In the case of qualitative operations the contamination level of the reference material (RM-SABAE) must be representative of the limit of detection.
