The Test

1. GENE-TRAK photometer set

The DNA hybridization test employs Salmonella-specific DNA probes directly labeled with horseradish peroxidase and a colorimetric detection system for the detection of Salmonella in food samples following broth culture enrichment. A sample is considered negative for the presence of Salmonella if the absorbance value obtained is less than or equal to the established cutoff value for the assay. A sample is considered presump- tively positive for the presence of Salmonella if the absorbance value obtained is greater than the established cutoff value of the assay.
