Evaluation of methods for enumeration of Vibrio parahaemolyticus from seafood.

By I Karunasagar, M N Venugopal, I Karunasagar and K Segar


The efficiency of several enrichment broths in recovering Vibrio parahaemolyticus inoculated into fish homogenates was studied. Recovery by the most probable number technique was very low in all the broths, while direct plating on thiosulfate citrate bile salt sucrose agar yielded better recovery. A decrease in the enrichment time to 8 from 18 h did not improve recovery. At concentrations exceeding 2.5 micrograms/ml, polymyxin was inhibitory to V. parahaemolyticus
