We describe a simple method for detecting<jats:named-content content-type="genus-species">B. pseudomallei</jats:named-content>using direct culture of soil in enrichment broth. This gives a rate of positivity comparable to that obtained with a standard method but is cheaper and labor saving.</jats:p>
