Selenite Broth is an enrichment medium for the isolation of Salmonella species from faecal specimens. Selenite Broth was originally developed by Liefson, and has long been used as a standard method for the selective recovery of Salmonella with the inhibition of other enteric microorganisms such as E. coli and faecal streptococci.
