Description Back to Top
• Intended Use: Salmonella Shigella Agar is used for the isolation of Salmonella spp. and some strains of Shigella spp.
• Product Summary and Explanation: Salmonellosis continues to be an important public health problem worldwide. Infection with
non-typhi Salmonella often causes a mild, self-limiting illness. Typhoid fever, caused by Salmonella typhi, is characterized by
fever, headache, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and can result in fatal respiratory, hepatic, and or neurological damage. This infection
can result from the consumption of raw, undercooked, or improperly processed foods contaminated with Salmonella spp.
Salmonella Shigella Agar is a modification of the Desoxycholate Citrate Agar described by Leifson. Salmonella Shigella Agar is superior to a number of other media for the isolation of Salmonella spp. and Shigella spp. Salmonella Shigella Agar is recommended for testing clinical specimens and food testing for the presence of Salmonella spp. and some Shigella spp.
