Abstract

The BIOLINE Salmonella ELISA Test for Salmonella spp., which is a rapid, easy, and convenient assay was evaluated for use in detecting Salmonella in foods and feeds. Each food matrix or feed was artificially contaminated with low levels of Salmonella. Twenty different matrixes were studied and 20 different Salmonella strains from a broad variety of serogroups (B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, M, O, P, and U) were used. The ELISA Test kit detected levels as low as 1 cfu/25 g sample with at least 4 of the 20 matrixes tested. The test kit is applicable to all sample types tested. The BIOLINE Salmonella ELISA Test kit has been granted AOAC-RI performance tested status.
