Salmonella ABC Medium is for the isolation of Salmonella spp, and is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

Salmonella spp. can be differentiated from other members of the family Enterobacteriaceae by their ability to produce α-galactosidase in the absence of β-galactosidase. This medium, developed for the isolation of Salmonella spp. from food and clinical samples, utilizes a dual chromogen system to visualize these enzyme activities. This medium will also detect Salmonella typhi and paratyphi.
