General description

GDS Shiga Toxin Genes (O157) Tq is an automated nucleic acid amplification system for the detection of Shiga Toxin producing E coli O157:H7 in foods, ingredients and environmental samples.


AOAC Official Method 2005.05

Features and Benefits

• Sequential approach to detecting Top STEC. Following sample preparation with IMS against the Top 6 or Top 7 O groups, samples are analyzed for the presence of eae with the GDS Top 6 or 7 STEC (eae) assay. Positive samples are subsequently analyzed for Shiga Toxin genes with the Assurance GDS Shiga Toxin Genes (Top 6 or Top 7) assay
• Confirm Assurance GDS E. coli O157:H7 positives samples with Assurance GDS Shiga Toxin Genes (O157) assay
• Single-step 10-18 h enrichment in mEHEC; enrichment media common to all BioControl methods for E.coli O157:H7, Shiga Toxin genes, and Top STEC
