Rappaport-Vassiliadis (MSRV) Medium Semisolid Modified is used with Novobiocin for the rapid detection of motile Salmonella spp. in a laboratory setting. Rappaport-Vassiliadis (MSRV) Medium Semisolid Modified is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.
Rappaport-Vassiliadis (MSRV) Medium Semisolid Modified is a modification of Rappaport-Vassiliadis enrichment broth for detecting motile Salmonella spp. in feces and food products. The original research on MSRV Medium revealed a semisolid could be used as a rapid and sensitive test for isolating motile Salmonella from food products following pre-enrichment or selective enrichment. The semisolid medium allows motility to be detected as halos of growth around the original point of inoculation.
MSRV Medium is recommended by the European Chocolate Manufacturer's Association. A collaborative study performed with support of American Cocoa Research Institute and the Canadian Chocolate Manufacturer's Association resulted in first action adoption of the MSRV method by AOAC International. MSRV Medium may be used as a plating medium for isolating Salmonella spp. (other than S. typhi and S. partyphi type A) from stool specimens with high sensitivity and specificity.
