Evaluation of the Assurance GDS® for Salmonella Method in Foods and Environmental Surfaces: Multilaboratory Collaborative Study
Abstract:A multilaboratory collaborative study was conducted to compare the detection of Salmonella by the Assurance GDS® for Salmonella method and the Reference culture methods. Six foods, representing a variety of low microbial and high microbial load foods were analyzed. Seventeen laboratories in the United States and Canada participated in this study. No statistical differences (P < 0.05) were observed between the Assurance GDS for Salmonella and the Reference culture methods for any inoculation level of any food type or naturally contaminated food, except for pasta, for which the Assurance GDS method had a higher number of confirmed test portions for Salmonella compared to the Reference method.
