Compact Dry SL


Compact Dry is a simple and safe procedure for determining and quantifying microorganisms in food, cosmetics and other raw materials, including pharmaceuticals. The ready-to-use Compact Dry chromogenic plates are suitable for both in-process and final product controls.

Salmonella is a genus of gram-negative bacteria consisting of only two (2) species, S. enterica y S. bongori. Together, they have more than 2500 serovars, most of which are pathogens.
