Rapid detection of Salmonella typhimurium in chicken carcass wash water using an immunoelectrochemical method

by Che, Yi Hua; Li, Yanbin; Slavik, Michael F.; Paul, David W.

An immunoelectrochemical method coupled with immunomagnetic separation was developed for rapid detection of Salmonella Typhimurium in chicken carcass wash water. Samples of chicken carcass wash water were inoculated with Salmonella Typhimurium at different cell numbers. Possible nonspecified inhibitors in the wash water were minimized by filtration and centrifugation. An approximately 9.4% toss of Salmonella cells was found after filtration (P 0.01).
