According to the data of World Health Organization (WHO) about 2 billion of people get sick with intestinal infections annually. The pathogens which spread through food and water are the main causes of the sickness and mortality; they lead to death of about 1.8 million each year. Resulting from the mentioned problem, it carries particular importance to conduct microbiological and molecular research of bacterial pathogens causing intestinal infections. One of the main pathogens, which spread through waters, is variety of Salmonella, pathogenically Escherichia coli and Shigella. Monitoring the food and water related pathogens would facilitate the process of downsizing their frequency in the environment, which on its own would reduce the risk of spreading diseases caused by the mentioned pathogen amongst humans. Early identification of these pathogens has the vital importance for quick and effective treatment.
