EPA Method 1682:
Salmonella in Sewage Sludge (Biosolids) by MSRV Medium. Official Name: Salmonella in Sewage Sludge (Biosolids) by Modified Semisolid Rapport-Vassiliadis (MSRV) Medium

Tryptic soil broth (TSB) enrichment medium in tubes is inoculated with a measured amount of sample and incubated for 24 hours. After incubation, positive (cloudy) tubes are spotted onto plates of MSRV medium and incubated at 42 deg. C for 16 - 18 hours. The MSRV medium uses novobiocin and malachite green to inhibit non-Salmonella species, while allowing most Salmonella species to grow. MSRV and the elevated temperature (42 deg. C) are inhibitory for S. typhi. Presumptive colonies are isolated on xylose-lysine desoxycholate (XLD) agar and confirmed using lysine-iron (LIA), triple sugar iron (TSI) agar, and urea broth followed by serological typing using polyvalent O antisera.

Detection and enumeration of Samonella in treated biosolids. Although selective for Salmonella bacteria it does not differentiate among Samonella species.

High numbers of competing or inhibitory organisms or toxic substances such as metals and organic compounds can result in low estimates of Salmonella.
