      Abstract:

      A simple adhesive-tape-based method for sampling of tomato   surfaces was combined with fluorescence in situ hybridization for   rapid culture-independent detection of Salmonella strains. Tapes   could also be placed face-down on selective agar for on-tape   enrichment of captured Salmonella cells. Overlay of cell-charged   tapes with small volumes of liquid enrichment media enabled   subsequent detection of tape-captured Salmonella via flow   cytometry.
