Assurance GDS® MPX for Top 6 or 7 STEC

Speed and Accuracy
Rapid accurate detection method features the latest innovations in genetic detection technology and food microbiology for the detection of Top STEC, including E. coli O157:H7, O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, and O145.

Three Levels of Specificity
The versatile collection of Assurance GDS MPX STEC assays incorporate three levels of specificity, including proprietary PickPen® Immunomagnetic Separation (IMS) to ensure fast and accurate time to results.

With the PickPen IMS, magnetic particles coated with antibodies specific to the Top STEC O-groups are combined with the enriched sample. The PickPen device collects and removes the particles with the bound E. coli separating them from the non-target O groups and helping to ensure detection of the gene targets is limited to the desired O-groups of E. coli.

Conducting IMS prior to analysis by PCR eliminates false positives caused by non-target O-groups of E. coli.

Assurance GDS MPX Top 6/7 STEC Features

  • Following sample preparation with IMS against the Top 6 or Top 7 O groups, samples are analyzed with a single multiplex assay for the presence of (eae), stx1, and stx2
  • Available for Top 6 STEC and Top 7 STEC
  • Assurance GDS MPX Top 7 STEC assay includes a separate target and differentiated result for E. coli O157:H7
  • 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
