Brilliant Green Agar with Sulfadiazine is used for the selective enrichment of Salmonella spp. in a laboratory setting. Brilliant Green Agar with Sulfadiazine is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans. Brilliant Green Agar was first described by Kristensen et al. and later modified by Kauffman. The outstanding selectivity of this medium permits the use of moderately heavy inocula, evenly distributed over the surface. The addition of sulfonamides into Brilliant Green Agar further inhibits Escherichia coli and Proteus spp. Brilliant Green Agar, abbreviated as BGA, with Sulfadiazine is recommended for the isolation of Salmonella from foods, especially eggs.
