Abstract

Salmonella are known to be etiological agents for typhoid fever, salmonellosis, and gastrointestinal infections, and are spread by water- and foodborne infections in humans and animals. Detection of the causative organism is important to control the spread of disease. Here, we review the methods for detection of Salmonella in water samples.
