Abstract: The current study validates a rapid PCR-based detection method and developed at BIOTECH-UPLB in comparison with the traditional AOAC/BAM culture method involving enrichment step and plating in selective media. The kit consisted of reaction tubes containing selected primer set for Salmonella. The protocol includes two-step enrichment period, DNA extraction and amplification of DNA in a thermal cycler followed by gel electrophoresis procedure. Validation of the detection kit was done on both naturally-contaminat…
