Description

Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) has become a worldwide epidemic and was found in countries like the US, Canada, Japan, China, and Germany, where a large outbreak of highly virulent E. coli O104:H4 occurred recently. There are multiple virulent factors in EHEC, with the Shiga Toxins being the most prominent. Among these, Type 2 Shiga Toxin (Stx2) carried the highest toxicity, which could lead to life threatening Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) in patients. Detection of Stx2 from EHEC greatly facilitates the determination of strain virulence, and thereby improves the detection rate for highly virulent E. coli O104:H4 strain. In other words, when the sample tests positive on the test strip, it contains EHEC capable of producing Stx2 toxin and therefore possesses a high-risk level. TriboTM Type 2 Shiga Toxin (Stx2) test strip provides a convenient and rapid test for Stx2 toxin with a colloidal gold immunochromatographic design. It detects Stx2 with two different monoclonal antibodies in a sandwich assay format and can be easily performed on feces, food, and water samples. It is a fast (results shown in 5-10 minutes), simple, sensitive, and reliable approach for Stx2 detection.
