Product Overview

Salmonella Antisera

The intestinal bacterium Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica is one of the most common causes of food poisoning. The increased incidence ofSalmonella infections in recent years has intensified the need for serotyping, which is an important tool for diagnostics and for the monitoring and control of food products.


Statens Serum Institut (SSI) has been involved since the 1930s in the development of the Salmonella typing system described in the Kauffmann–White scheme. This scheme describes the antigen composition of more than 2,500 identified Salmonella enterica serotypes and is an invaluable tool inSalmonella typing work. Full serotyping of Salmonella involves the use of antibodies against somatic O, capsular Vi, and phase 1 and 2 flagellar H antigens. Today, SSI Diagnostica produces more than 200 differentSalmonella antisera, which makes it possible to type more than 99% of allSalmonella serotypes. With the exception of antiserum Vi, all of our sera are polyclonal, produced by immunising rabbits. All polyclonal antisera are produced in accordance with "Guidelines for the preparation of Salmonellaantisera" (ref.: WHO Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Salmonella, Institut Pasteur, France).
Antiserum Vi is a monoclonal antiserum produced by culturing hybridoma cell lines in vitro and then concentrating the antibody from the culture supernatant. With the exception of the products Poly A-E+Vi, Poly A-I+Vi, Poly A-S+Vi, Poly 42-67 and Poly H, all Salmonella antisera are specific, achieved by testing with a large selection of strains and absorption of any known cross-reactions. Salmonella antisera from SSI Diagnostica are intended for either slide agglutination or H phase inversion on swarm agar plates.

Some O antisera cross-react with antigens from other bacteria, e.g.CitrobacterProteus and Shigella, as the O antigens from these species can be very similar to antigens in Salmonella. Before serotyping, it is therefore important that identification of Salmonella is confirmed, e.g. by means of biochemical reactions.


SSI Diagnostica's antisera are high quality, CE-marked and produced in accordance with DS/EN ISO 13485 and DS/EN ISO 9001. The shelf life is 4 years from the date of production, and a minimum of 2 years from the delivery date. Sodium azide 0.09% is added to all Salmonella sera as a preservative.
