Colorex Salmonella

Focus on Salmonella Species

Infections caused by Salmonella spp, including Salmonella Typhi, remain a major worldwide health problem:

- In the US, Salmonella has an incidence rate of 16.2 cases per 100,000 (CDC estimation, 2008).

- In Europe, it is reported as the first cause of collective toxi-infections. (2007 EFSA report)

- In developing countries, Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi are commonly encountered with an estimated annual incidence of about 17 million cases. (2007 EFSA report)

Moreover, according to a recent WHO report, Salmonella infections are responsible for 2 million deaths per year from diarrhoea.

 

Medium Performance

1. Easy reading

2. Greater Specificity / Less workload 

3. High sensitivity, leading to a higher detection rate of Salmonella 

4. Dramatic decrease of the workload
