E.Coli O104 FLUO Kit

The E. coli O104 FLUO kit is a qPCR assay developed to identify the pathogen by the amplification of a serotype related gene wzx. The kit provides a ready to use PCR mix containing an Internal Control to assess the efficiency of amplification, revealing the presence of inhibitory factors in the sample. The kit also contains a PCR Positive Control.

Description

E. coli is a bacterium that is found in the intestines of healthy humans and animals, and which is part of the normal bacterial flora. However, some E. coli strains can cause diseases and lead to serious infection. VTEC (verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli) is a group of pathogenic E. coli bacteria that can cause bloody diarrhoea and haemolytic uremic syndrome in humans, a serious condition that can lead to kidney failure and be fatal. A virulent and rare strain of VTEC, O104:H4, caused the 2011 E. coli outbreak in France and Germany. This is a rare EHEC strains or EAEC that has acquired the Shiga toxin gene.
