VereType-E™ Detection Kit is a multiplex PCR/microarray-based research use only test. This nucleic acid-based test is intended for qualitative detection, differentiation and identification of multiple food-borne pathogens in a single test. One or more of the following targets can be identified:
- Escherichia. coli O157:H7
- non-O157 Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) serogroups
- Salmonella spp.
The virulence genes targeted for E.coli analysis are:
- eae (intimin)
- eae gamma
- stx (Shiga-like toxins)
- ehxA (enterohemolysin)
This test is for use in conjunction with the VerePLEX™ Biosystem.
