Selective medium for isolation of Salmonella.
Catalog #B2750
DescriptionBrilliant Green Agar was first described by Kristensen et al. in 1925 and later modified by Kauffman in 1933. It is classified by the USP as a highly selective medium for the recovery of Salmonella species except for typhoid and paratyphoid strains.
