The Premier EHEC test is a rapid in vitro microwell enzyme immunoassay for the detection of Shiga Toxins I and II (Verotoxins) in stool specimens, broth cultures, individual colonies or colony sweeps of agar plates.
The test is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) infections.
The test can be used directly on fresh, frozen or Cary-Blair preserved stools and plate or broth culture systems. Its accuracy is more than 90 percent overall agreement compared to cytotoxin. Color-Trak reagents allow the lab tech to know where they are at each step.
