On methods for the isolation of Salmonella from chickens

Cottew, G.S. (1951) On methods for the isolation of Salmonella from chickens. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 8 (4). pp. 120-126.



The efficiency of some selective media for isolating Salmonella from chickens was investigated. From each of 268 birds the liver, lung and intestinal mucosa and contents were cultured. These were sown on to direct plates of MacConkey, bismuth sulphite and S.S. agar and into tetrathionate broth. S. pullorum was recovered most frequently from the lung, while most isolations of other species of Salmonella were made from the intestine. An efficient yet economical method for routine isolations of Salmonella from chickens was adopted.
