LFS E. coli O157

Rapid antibody-based alternative to culture methods for E. coli O157.

The Lateral Flow System (LFS) for E. coli O157 uses test strips that employ a unique combination of anti-E. coli O157 antibodies and colloidal gold conjugate coated on the surface of a membrane. After enrichment, drop the test strip into an aliquot of enriched sample broth and read the results 10 minutes later. One control line is built into the lateral flow strip so you know the test has worked correctly. Two lines indicate a positive result.

Key Benefits

Immunoassay alternative for routine pathogen screening.

AOAC-RI Performance Tested

Results in as Little as 10 Minutes

No Capital Investment

Fast and Simple Procedure

Validated on Wide Array of Matrices

Sensitive to Low-level Contamination

AOAC-RI Performance Tested Method #010601

Validated on ground beef and boneless beef to perform as well as the reference culture method, even at low spike levels (1-4 cfu/25g sample)

Proprietary enrichment media for optimized results.

LFS E. coli enrichment media reduces enrichment time to 8 hours for 25-g samples or 10-15 hours for 375-g samples. The media powder is mixed directly with sterile water for immediate use. After enrichment, you can choose to heat-treat the samples or test them immediately.

Rapid Results

Using a unique combination of antibodies and highly engineered colloidal gold conjugate coated on the surface of a membrane, the Hygiena Lateral Flow System yields pathogen screening results much faster than conventional, culture-based testing. Get positive results in as little as 10 minutes. Confirm negatives in 8-18 hours.
