BACGene E.coli O157:H7 10x HTP

BACGene E.coli O157:H7

The BACGene E. coli O157:H7 kit provides materials for the rapid detection of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in food and environmental samples by targeting the O157 antigen-specific gene and the flagellar (H) antigen in a probe-based real-time PCR approach.

The BACGene E. coli O157:H7 kit provides materials for the rapid detection of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in food and environmental samples by targeting the O157 antigen-specific gene and the flagellar (H) antigen in a probe-based real-time PCR approach.

The BACGene E. coli O157:H7 kit is validated for use with the Agilent AriaMx™, Bio-Rad CFX96 Touch™ and CFX96 Touch™ Deep Well PCR platforms.

The kit is intended to be used by analytical laboratories and may also be applied for other purposes in the food product research and analysis field, e.g. microbial monitoring of production processes.
The kit is not intended for clinical diagnostics and should therefore be regarded as “For Research Use Only”.

AFNOR certification

The BACGene E. coli O157:H7 kit is certified by NF Validation Certification as an alternative method for E. coli O157:H7 detection in selected food matrices according to ISO 16140-2:2016.
(please see the list of selected food matrices in the manual)

AOAC certification

The BACGene E. coli O157:H7 and STEC Top7 workflows are certified by the AOAC-Research Institute under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Program for detection of E. coli O157:H7 and STEC Top7 in:
• Raw ground beef (up to 375 g)
• Raw beef trim (up to 375 g)
• Beef carcass – MicroTally™ swab (with PREraser*)
• Romaine lettuce (up to 375 g)
• Stainless steel environmental surface (1'' x 1'' area; with PREraser*)
• All-purpose flour (25 g; with PREraser*)


* PREraser BACGene has been performance tested for three relevant matrices. Therefore, provided that additional matrices are verified, PREraser BACGene can be applied to other matrices within the scope of the method.
