Immunomagnetic Separation Range
Lab M has extended its immunomagnetic separation range with the launch of Captivate™ O121. This is for the detection and isolation of Escherichia coli O121, a non-O157 Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli (STEC) that is associated with foodborne infection and is one of the ‘big six’ organisms in meat products for which testing is required in the USA.
- The use of IMS supports the specific isolation of E. coli O121
- Immunomagnetic separation is now written into US Department of Agriculture methodology for the detection and isolation of non-O157 Shiga Toxin-Producing E. coli in meat products
