Rapid CDIATM Salmonella kits are intended for qualitative detection of salmonella in food.
Salmonella is one of the most important pathogens that challenge the food industry today. This pathogen remains one of the leading causes of human foodborne infections in most countries. Salmonellosis symptoms include watery diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, fever, headache and occasional constipation with hospitalization required in cases of severe infections. Aside from the appalling human cost, outbreaks associated with a food product also bring a significant financial burden. The number of samples tested for Salmonella increases constantly as a result of enhanced surveillance by both the food industry and governmental health authorities.
