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.

BAX® System PCR Tablets

These convenient BAX® System PCR tablets contain all the reagents needed for fast and reliable testing results. Simply hydrate with the prepared sample and load the rack into the BAX® System instrument for automated analysis.

Most Validated Matrices

With decades of experience in food safety, working with hundreds of top food manufacturers across a broad array of product groups, we’ve established dozens of protocols for the most difficult matrices. Our world-class applications scientists have solved the problem, so you don’t have to.

Accurate Results

In the food & beverage industry, accurate results mean fewer re-tests, shorter storage time for products on hold, and less waste of truly safe food. Reduce potential errors to ensure tests are run properly using the BAX® System’s intuitive layout of software interface and internal positive control tablets.

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.
