Background Information
Shiga-like toxin producing E.coli (SLTEC) belong to O serogroups and serotypes O157:H7 and O157:H are the predominant SLTEC associated with hemorrhagic colitis (HC) and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Outbreaks of HC and HUS due to E. coli O157 have been linked to consumption of undercooked ground beef. Prevalence studies indicate that up to 3.7% of retail meats may contain E. coli O157. Although this may seem low compared to some other foodborne pathogens, the seriousness of disease caused by E. coli O157 has made this pathogen a major food safety concern. Detection of E. coli O157:H7 in meats by cultural methods is time consuming, requiring several days to obtain presumptive positive results. This E. coli O157 ELISA test kit provide a rapid and reliable method for detection of E. coli O157.
