Salmonella species cause a variety of human diseases called salmonelloses. The range of disease is from mild self-limiting gastroenteritis to more severe forms, possibly with bacteremia or typhoid fever, which can be life threatening. Hence diagnosis and identification of correct serotype is essential. These antisera aid in detecting such serotypes and the quality control antigens check their performance.
Lyophilized, polyclonal rabbit antisera
Polyvalent, specific for somatic antigens
Cross-reactions are possible because serogroups may share non-major group antigens
When properly rehydrated and used as recommended, each vial contains sufficient reagent for 60 tests
For in vitro diagnostic use
containing approximately 0.2% sodium azide as a preservative
