An interlaboratory trial was conducted of a latex agglutination kit for the rapid identification of Salmonella enteritidis, to assess the stability of the components and its performance with respect to a panel of three coded salmonellas and 243 field isolates. Two of the components of the kit deteriorated with time. All 62 isolates of S enteritidis were correctly identified by the kit; only two false positives were recorded and no false negatives.
