Neogen® offers rapid lateral flow and innovative molecular detection tests for E. coli O157:H7 in food and environmental samples, as well as dehydrated culture media for traditional detection methods.
E. coli is a normal inhabitant of the intestines of all animals, including humans. E. coli O157:H7 is a rare variety of E. coli that produces large quantities of toxin that cause severe damage to the lining of the intestine. Undercooked or raw hamburger has been implicated in most of the documented outbreaks, although the prevalence of animal manure in agricultural practices has led to outbreaks in other foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Neogen offers E. coli testing for E. coli 0157:H7 detection.
Neogen’s ANSR® for E. coli O157:H7 test system utilizes patent-pending, unique amplification reaction technology for in vitro DNA amplification. ANSR’s amplification methodology exponentially amplifies the DNA of any target bacteria present in enriched food or environmental samples to detectable levels in only minutes.
Neogen’s Reveal® E. coli O157:H7 screening kits are extremely easy-to-use and interpret test strips that screen samples against set thresholds.
Neogen Reveal 2.0 E. coli O157:H7 test systems have everything to complete a pathogen screen, including the enrichment medium. Reveal’s lateral flow device combines an immunoassay with chromatography for a rapid and accurate one-step result. Built-in visual control lines provide definitive interpretations with E. coli O157:H7 testing.
