Abstract

Three commercial and one non-commercial ELISA test kits for detecting Salmonella antibodies in meat juice of pigs were tested in an international ring test. All test kits proved to produce highly comparable results. The result has relevance for the upcoming Salmonella control strategy in the EU, if the national Salmonella reduction measures are planned to be based on a serological risk categonsation of pig herds.
