BACGene Mplex STEC Screen

The BACGene Mplex STEC Screen kit provides materials for the rapid detection of potentially shiga-toxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC) in food and environmental samples by analyzing stx1, stx2 and eae in a fast and reliable probe-based real-time PCR approach.

E. coli O157:H7 is the most prominent serotype among STEC, however other serotypes are also potentially threatening to human health by expressing stx1 and stx2 (the Top6: O145, O121, O111, O103, O45 and O26).

The BACGene Mplex STEC Screen kit provides materials for the rapid detection of potentially shiga-toxigenic Escherichia coli (STEC) in food and environmental samples by analyzing stx1, stx2 and eae in a fast and reliable probe-based real-time PCR approach.

The BACGene Mplex STEC Screen 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 diagnostic and should therefore be regarded as “For Research Use Only”.

AOAC certification

The BACGene Mplex STEC Screen kit is certified by the AOAC-Research Institute under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Program for detection of shiga-toxigenic E. coli in:
 Raw ground beef (up to 375 g)
 Raw beef trim (up to 375 g)
 Beef carcass – MicroTallyTM 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.
