Compact Dry SL for Salmonella

Compact Dry SL for Salmonella

Compact Dry SL detects salmonella using 20- 24 hour pre-enrichment cultures. The plates are based on the combination of three different test principles:

1. Alkalization of the medium, by Salmonella  lysine decarboxylase ability (the medium colour will change from blue-purple to yellow);
2. Greening of the colony, caused by decomposition of chromogenic substrate with a specific enzyme of Salmonella (black colonies are generated by hydrogen sulfide producing Salmonella);
3. the motility of Salmonella.
