Neogen® provides optical microbial detection and membrane filter tests for E. coli, as well as dehydrated culture media for traditional E. coli 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 a toxin that can cause severe damage to the lining of the intestine. Undercooked or raw hamburger has been implicated in many 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 detection.
The Neogen Filter test system utilizes 2 mL of ampouled media to detect and enumerate a wide variety of microorganisms in liquid samples.
The Soleris® system consists of an incubator, ready-to-use vials, and system software. It provides reproducible, rapid, and accurate detection and enumeration of a variety of microorganisms across a spectrum of sample types including food, dairy, beverages, nutraceuticals and cosmetics.
