DNA sequences of an internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region for 40 Salmonella serovars were determined and compared with ITS sequences of Salmonella spp., and non-Salmonella spp. already available on the GenBank database. From such comparison, two Salmonella-specific ITS based PCR primers, ITSF and ITSR, were designed. When Salmonella strains with various serotypes were PCR assayed with primers ITSF/ITSR, all generated PCR products with molecular weight bands equal to 312 bp. On the other hand, 48 non-Salmonella isolates, including strains of Enterobacteriaceae and other food pathogens generated negative results. Detection limits of this PCR method was 1-9 CFU per assay. These PCR primers were used for the detection of Salmonella cells in artificially contaminated foods, including chicken meat and whole milk. The detection limit was 1-9 X 10(3) CFU per assay. With an 8-h enrichment step performed prior to the PCR assay, however, the detection limit became 1-9 CFU per gram of the food sample. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier B.V.
