foodproof STEC Screening LyoKit

Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC or VTEC), e.g. E. coli O157, E. coli O145 or E. coli O104 are known to cause diarrhea, hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and the potentially fatal hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). STEC are most commonly transmitted through raw ground beef, raw or inadequately pasteurized milk, sprouts and vegetables.
The foodproof STEC Screening LyoKit detects the Shiga toxin genes stx1 and stx2, including the allele stx2f, as well as the adherence-factor intimin gene (eae) in one multiplex real-time PCR reaction. The detection of stx2f is currently not possible using the STEC ISO / TS 13136.

STEC screening provides individual answers for stx1, stx2, and eae genes in one reaction. The completely new and unique assay design enables melting curve analysis with sequence specific 5’ nuclease probes, whereby the highest specificity is achieved.

Fast: < 24 h to result with < 40 min of hands-on time. Validated 8 h enrichment time protocol for meat.
Safe: Prevention of false-positive results and carry-over contamination by using Uracil-N-Glycosylase.
Sensitive: Validated to detect 1– 10 cfu/25g sample, including enrichment.
Easy: Convenient, complete solution, all controls included. Rapid protocol for colony confirmation available.
Experienced: Manufacturer of PCR-based rapid tests for the food industry since 1998 with an ISO 17025 accredited service lab.
