Four culture methods (A, B, C, and D) were comparatively evaluated for their ability to isolate Salmonella enterica from pooled swine fecal samples (n = 100). None of the methods was able to isolate Salmonella from all positive samples. The relative sensitivity of the culture methods evaluated was 82%, 94%, 95%, and 78% for methods A, B, C, and D, respectively. The comparison of sensitivities showed that methods B and C performed significantly better (P < 0.05) than methods A and D. Although… CONTINUE READING
