DuPont BAX System STEC Suite contains three real-time PCR assays that enable food processors and labs to detect the Shiga toxin-producing The BAX System screening assay detects a combination of stx and eae virulence genes to clear negative samples in the production line. Two multiplex panel assays can determine which of the top six non-O157 STEC serogroups (O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, O145) are present in positive samples, the company says. The tests were developed in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture and have been approved by the AOAC Research Institute.
