Brilliant Green Agar w/ Sulfapyridine is used for the selective enrichment of Salmonella spp.
Product Summary and Explanation
Salmonellosis continues to be an important public health problem. Infection with non-typhi Salmonella spp. often causes mild, self-limiting illness. Illness results from consumption of raw, undercooked, or improperly processed foods contaminated with Salmonella spp. Many cases of Salmonella related gastroenteritis result from improper handling of poultry products.
Brilliant Green Agar was first described by Kristensen et al. and later modified by Kauffmann. The outstanding selectivity of this medium permits the use of moderately heavy inocula evenly distributed over the surface. The addition of sulfonamides into Brilliant Green Agar further inhibits Escherichia coli and Proteus spp. Osborne and Stokes used 0.1% Sodium Sulfapyridine to enhance the recovery of Salmonella from whole egg and egg yolk.
