Salmonellais the most widespread type of bacteria, which causes many diseases around the world, as it spreads in developed and developing countries alike, and its resistance to antibiotics, which has recently increased, has caused panic and concern about global public health, as its spread in various countries of the world is almost at the same rate.The lack of control and quality of food and beverages, which leads to their contamination to a large extent, is one of the biggest reasons for the spread of Salmonella in different environments, in addition to infection with humans. So,Comparing ofSalmonella isolates from different environments with those isolated from humans, whether blood or feces, through their resistance to antibiotics was our target.In this study, 58 samples were isolated from different environments, which were divided into 18 samples of human feces - 2 samples of human blood, 24 samples of different types of vegetables. In addition to 2 samples from each of the sewage water and 2 of well water, and 10 samples were isolated from chicken internal organs.The isolates were identified by BPW, SSA and XLD media, as well as using of BECKMA COULTERcompact system for biomedical identification and test the antibiotics resistance of isolates.The results came out positive, 20 samples matching the phenomena, the morphology on the dishes of the different culture media, in addition to the physiological results of BECKMA COULTER. The sensitivity of the isolates to antibiotics was somewhat different from previous studies, where all the isolates were resistant to Ampicillin, and all of them were sensitive to many types of antibiotics such as Cefepime - Levofloxacine - Amoxcillin / clav and other antibiotics. Salmonella is found in different environments and spreads widely, which increases scientific health concern, as it increases its resistance to antibiotics known for their strength.
