Selenite Broth is used for the selective enrichment of Salmonella spp.
Product Summary and Explanation
Selenite Broth was originated by Leifson, while observing good recovery of Salmonella spp. and reduced growth of fecal coliforms. Selenite Broth is used as a selective enrichment for the cultivation of Salmonella spp. that may be present in small numbers and competing with intestinal flora. Salmonella organisms are also injured in food-processing procedures, including exposure to low temperatures, sub-marginal heat, drying, radiation, preservatives or sanitizers. Although injured cells may not form colonies on selective media, they cause infection if ingested. Salmonella spp. cause many types of infections, from mild self-limiting gastroenteritis to life-threatening typhoid fever.
Selenite Broth conforms with the American Public Health Association (APHA),5 and is specified for clinical applications. Many modifications of Selenite Broth exist, including Selenite Cystine Broth, from the original formula described as Selenite F Broth by Leifson.
