Superior Detection of Multiple Salmonella Serovars from Meat and Environmental Samples Using a Multiplex PCR Method
Foods may be contaminated with more than one serovar of Salmonella but limitations in international standard methods may result in only one being detected. This study demonstrates the superior performance of a Salmonella multiplex PCR method for detection of multiple Salmonella serovars from a single sample compared to reference methods, facilitating improved reporting of serovars Salmonella Typhimurium and Enteritidis.
