The CSD method allows the rapid detection of Cronobacter spp in human food products (especially milk powders and infant ingredients) and products from the production environment.

At the end of an enrichment phase with Salmonella Enrichment + CSD supplement, a subculture is carried out on CCI agar. The characteristic colonies will be confirmed.

The CSD method is certified NF VALIDATION, for the search for Cronobacter spp, according to the validation protocol NF EN ISO 16140-2 of 2016, with respect to the reference method EN ISO 22964: 2017, for the following categories:

  • Infant milk powders, with and without probiotics; ingredients for test doses from 0 to 50 g, with a 1/10th dilution.
  • Infant milk powders, with and without probiotics for test samples from 50 to 375 g, with a 1/4" dilution.
  • Samples of the production environment
