BAX® System Q7 PCR Assays for E. coli O157:H7

E. coli O157:H7 testing kits and dozens of validated matrices.

Real-Time E.coli O157:H7 EXACT

E. coli O157:H7 is a recognized food-borne pathogen found in raw beef, produce, milk and many more matrices. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal illness at a very low infectious dose (as few as 10 CFU). The organism is often difficult to detect with traditional culture methods, especially where low levels of the target must be isolated from high levels of competing background flora. The BAX® System Q7 PCR assay E. coli O157:H7 Exact has greater specificity the our other E. coli O157:H7 kits.
