Thermo ScientificTM OxoidTM
Selectively enrich Salmonella spp. from food, animal feces, and environmental samples with Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Modified Semi-solid Rappaport Vassiliadis (MRSV) Agar (ISO) (Dehydrated). The efficacy of the medium is based upon the ability of Salmonellae to migrate through the selective medium ahead of competing Gram-negative, motile organisms and, thus, produce opaque halos of growth.
