• Intended Use: Selenite Cystine Broth is used for the selective enrichment of Salmonella species.
• Product Summary and Explanation: The growth and isolation of Salmonella in food and other samples can be suppressed from
food-processing procedures including exposure to low and or high temperatures, drying, radiation, preservatives, and sanitizers.
