Abstract

MacConkey broth purple provides a more efficient method for Most Probable Number estimation for Shigatoxigenic Escherichia coli (E.coli) than the process of bacterial enrichment in buffered peptone water followed by detection on MacConkey agar, since it is a single-step process that gives comparable results in plant extracts.
