Abstract

Two methods were compared to determine their ability and efficiency in detecting Salmonella in poultry litter samples. Method 1 consisted of pre-enrichment in buffered peptone water (BPW), selective motility enrichment in Modified Semisolid Rappaport Vassiliadis (MSRV) agar, and plating onto MacConkey (MC) agar. Method 2 employed tetrathionate brilliant green (TBG) broth and plating on brilliant green agar with novobiocin (BGAN) and on xylose lysine tergitol 4 (XLT4) agar. Method 1 resulted in a significantly higher isolation rate, was cheaper, and was less labor intensive.
