Rappaport Vassiliadis broth (containing malachite green and magnesium chloride) is a selective enrichment broth used for the detection of Salmonella in food. It is generally used in parallel with Selenite Cystine (SC) broth. Rappaport Vassiliadis (RV) broth contains a peptone base which favors the growth of Salmonella.

RV broth contains potassium dihydrogen phosphate for improved pH stability, and magnesium chloride at a concentration which reduces the toxic effect of malachite green and ensures selectivity of the medium.
