dc.description.abstractThe European and International Standard method for the detection of Salmonella spp. in samples from the primary production stage, EN ISO 6579:2002/Amd.1:2007, was validated by an interlaboratory study in the frame of Mandate M/381, ordered by the European Commission and accepted by the European Standardisation Organisation (CEN). In addition to this study, results from two interlaboratory studies organised earlier by the European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL) for Salmonella were used for determination of the performance characteristics. Parallel to the performance evaluation for the Mandate, the revision of EN ISO 6579:2002 started. Part of this revision was the incorporation of the standardised method for detection of Salmonella in samples from the primary production stage (EN ISO 6579:2002/Amd.1:2007) and its performance characteristics in the new part 1 of EN ISO 6579. The 2002 version of EN ISO 6579 already contained performance characteristics for the detection of Salmonella in food samples, but LOD50 values (contamination level at which 50% of the samples are found positive) were not yet included. To be in line with the performance characteristics determined for detection of Salmonella spp. in samples from the primary production stage, LOD50 values for detection of Salmonella in food samples were calculated from the raw data of the validation studies performed in 2000. In this paper, the performance characteristics of EN ISO 6579-1:2017 are determined based not only on the results of the interlaboratory study carried out in 2013 under the Mandate, but also on several other interlaboratory studies. These performance characteristics consist of specificity, sensitivity and LOD50.
