The innovative formulation of CSR Broth not only enables faster recovery and growth of Salmonella, but also neutralizes the PCR-inhibiting properties commonly associated with these types of samples.
  • Fast results: optimized formulation enables enrichment in 20 hours, compared to traditional methods that can take up to 39 hours, reducing time to result and streamlining your workflow
  • Proven performance: tested on some of the most challenging cocoa-containing ingredients and finished chocolate products, this novel formulation reduces the bactericidal effects of polyphenols often found in cocoa and chocolate products, providing an optimized environment for recovery and growth of microorganisms
  • Versatility: maximize your detection by using before culture, immunological or PCR methods for maximum efficiency and detection
