CEN - EN ISO 19250
Water quality - Detection of Salmonella spp.
|Publication Date:||1 April 2013|
|ICS Code (Microbiology of water):||07.100.20|
This International Standard specifies a method for the detection of Salmonella spp. (presumptive or confirmed) in water samples. It is possible that, for epidemiological purposes or during outbreak investigations, other media are also required.
WARNING - It is possible that the method does not recover all Salmonella ser. Typhi and ser. Paratyphi.
NOTE For a semi-quantitative approach, most probable number (MPN) tests can be performed using appropriate sample volumes. For these cases, the volume of the buffered peptone water is adjusted accordingly.
