E. coli IMS/ATP Assay Kit

ecoliEscherichia coli (or E. coli for short) is a common bacterium that lives in human and animal intestines, where it is present in large numbers. There are hundreds of E. coli strains and most are relatively harmless, causing illnesses such as traveler’s diarrhea only when consumed in exceedingly high numbers. A notorious exception is E. coli strain 0157:H7, an emerging pathogen that produces a powerful toxin and can cause severe illness. E. coli O157:H7 was first recognized as a cause of illness during an outbreak in 1982 traced to contaminated hamburgers. Since seen, incidents were also reported were people became sick after drinking or swimming in water contaminated by E. coli 0157:H7. Symptoms of poisoning by E. coli 0157:H7 include bloody diarrhea, kidney damage, and occasionally death.

For the latest in published research in this area, see Bushon et al - Comparison of immunomagnetic separation/adenosine triphosphate rapid method to traditional culture-based method for E. coli and enterrococci enumeration in wastewater.

The Virusys E. coli IMS Beads have been developed for the immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of E. coli from a wide range of sample matrices.

Real Time PCR Assays

bigstock-Flu-virus-7530305mod rtpcr


Real-Time PCR kits for the quantification of Herpesvirus copy numbers.

Each kit contains a ready-to-use primer/probe mix consisting of forward and reverse primers combined with a FAM/BHQ-labeled probe specific for the target sequence. This probe mix is supplied at 20x concentration and may be used with standard real-time PCR reagents.

For absolute copy number calculations, a tube of standards is also included containing the target sequence. These standards may be diluted to create a standard curve.
