Abstract: Rapid Salmonella detection is needed to help prevent the distribution of contaminated food products. Using traditional culture methods, Salmonella detection can take up to 3-5 days. Using an improved protocol and a commercial real-time PCR system, we have shortened the detection time to less than 24 hr with comparable sensitivity and specificity to traditional Salmonella culture methods.
