In June 2020, MicroVal has approved the issuing of the certificate for One Broth One Plate for Salmonella (OBOP-S), manufactured by Neogen. Using traditional culture methodology, OBOP-S offers a rapid method for the enrichment and detection of Salmonella spp in a broad range of food, feed and environmental samples. The certificate results from a validation study performed by the MicroVal expert lab Qlaboratories. The data from this validation study will also be submitted to AOAC International for certification as part of a harmonized validation process. The certificate and the accompanying summary report, number 2019LR88, can be found under ‘issued certificates / alternative methods’.
