A comparison of the efficiency of Rappaport-Vassiliadis, tetrathionate and selenite broths with and without pre-enrichment for the isolation of Salmonella in animal waste biogas plants.

Abstract

A total of 481 samples of biomass from biogas plants treating slurry and other types of animal waste were examined for the presence of salmonellae by means of five different isolation methods. In 131 samples, Salmonella was isolated by means of one or more methods. A statistical evaluation of the isolation frequencies showed that Rappaport-Vassiliadis broth… (More)
