A selective chromogenic plate , YECA , for the detection of pathogenic Yersinia enterocolitica : specificity , sensibility and capacity to detect pathogenic Y . enterocolitica from pig tonsils

A new selective chromogenic plate, YECA, was tested for its specificity, sensitivity and accuracy to detect pathogenic Y. enterocolitica from pig tonsils. We tested a panel of 26 bacterial strains on YECA and compared it to PCA, CIN and YeCM media. Detection of pathogenic Y. enterocolitica was carried out on 50 pig tonsils collected in one slaughterhouse… (More)
