VereType-E™

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
    • O26
    • O45
    • O103
    • O111
    • O121
    • O145
  • 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.
