A study was undertaken to compare two enrichment broths and to test a new plate medium, Rambach agar, for their suitability to detect Salmonella from marine recreational waters.
The study shows that under conditions of low levels of fecal contamination, Salmonella spp was isolated more efficiently using NR1O(10)/43 broth.
While at higher levels of fecal contamination NR10/43 broth effectively limits the growth of accompanying flora.
For the highest level of fecal contamination Rambach agar was less selective than Hektoen enteric agar but Rambach agar was shown to be better than Hektoen agar for the recovery of Salmonella strains from low contaminated waters.
