Salmonella spp. are one of the most important groups of food-borne pathogens worldwide. Conventional methods for the detection of Salmonella spp. in foodstuffs are generally cumbersome and time consuming. Whereas various more rapid detection methods have been developed over the past few years, there is currently no reliable true 24-hour detection method available. We report here a reliable Salmonella PCR detection method yielding results within 24 h. Chicken samples were preenriched in buffered… CONTINUE READING
