GeneDisc® Technologies - E. coli O157(:H7)

For easy, rapid and reliable detection of pathogenic E. coli O157(:H7) in food

Escherichia coli are common in human bacterial flora. Most of them are harmless, but some known as Shiga Toxic E. coli or STEC, can cause severe, sometimes lethal, pathologies.

Among these STEC, E. coli O157:H7 is the most commonly reported serotype related to human diseases. Main infection source is contaminated food making it a major concern for food processors.

Pall GeneDisc Technologies provides an ideal solution for food companies in need of a reliable control of E. coliO157(:H7) risk.

GeneDisc System Benefits

Rapid — Accelerate the batch release of your short shelf life products and raw materials. While other methods such as immunoassays or culture methods require up to 3 days to results, the Pall's GeneDisc method allows a detection of pathogenic E. coli O157 in as fast as 10 hours.

Easy to use — GeneDisc solutions are designed for routine use. Implementing PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) has never been this easy.

High throughput capability — Process up to 96 samples DNA extractions simultaneously in less than one hour.

Modular — System modularity fits your throughput needs: up to 96 samples can be analyzed in a one hour PCR run.

Specifications

A Solution Designed for Food Industries

Pathogenic strains discrimination – Screening method based on detection of virulence factors (shigatoxin and intimin) provides a lower rate of presumptive positive.

In line with MLG 5 and ISO 16654 – NF VALIDATION and AOAC certified method.

Test Salmonella spp. simultaneously –Analysis with Salmonella spp. is available and does not require any additional hands-on time nor enrichment.
