Salmonella Antisera

SSI Diagnostica produces more than 200 different Salmonella antisera, making it possible to type 99% of all Salmonella serotypes.

Salmonella Antisera

SSI Diagnostica has more than 75 years of experience with research and production of Salmonella antisera, and we offer a range of products with strong portfolio breadth and depth to facilitate accurate identification as specified by the Kaufmann-White Scheme.
Salmonella is often linked with food safety issues, and it is the leading cause of food poisoning. In compromised patients it can even lead to death. Therefore, it is important to get fast and reliable results.

Gold Standard in Serotyping

The Kauffmann–White Le Minor scheme describes the antigen composition of >2,500 identified Salmonella enterica serotypes. SSI Diagnostica produces more than 200 different Salmonella antisera, making it possible to type 99% of all Salmonella serotypes.

All our antisera are produced in accordance with “Guidelines for the preparation of Salmonella antisera” (ref.: WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Salmonella, Institute Pasteur, France).

Quality and Storage

SSI Diagnostica ready-to-use antisera are high quality, CE-marked and produced in accordance with DS/EN ISO 13485. The shelf life is 4 years from the date of production, and a minimum of 2 years from the delivery date. Sodium azide 0.09% is added to all Salmonella antisera as a preservative.

The antisera must be stored at 2–8°C
