SCCRAM Broth is a non-selective culture medium used for the rapid enrichment of Salmonella spp. with the ISO-GRID® and/or NEO-GRID® Membrane Filtration System in a laboratory setting. SCCRAM Broth is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

SCCRAM Broth was developed for the primary non-selective enrichment of Salmonella spp. from food samples. This medium was designed to stimulate sufficient repair and multiplication of Salmonella spp. within 6 – 8 hours of incubation at 42°C. The SCCRAM Broth formulation is used to enable direct presumptive detection of Salmonella in a total incubation period of 24 hours using EF-18 Agar and the ISO-GRID and/or NEO-GRID Membrane Filtration System.
