Enteric Bacteria Screening

EB001– EasyScreen™ Enteric Bacteria Detection Kit

EB001 (100RXNS) & EB001-HT (500RXNS)

For the detection of (i) Salmonella spp., (ii) Campylobacter spp., (iii) Shigella spp./Enteroinvasive  E.coli, (iv) Yersinia enterocolitica, (v) toxigenic C. difficile and (vi) Listeria monocytogenes in faecal samples. The multiplexed PCR is performed over two PCR wells and includes an Internal Positive Control (IPC) and an Extraction Control (EC) in the following layout:

Detection ChannelReaction Mix AReaction Mix B
Channel 1Campylobacter spp.Toxigenic Clostridium difficile (tcdA/tcdB)
Channel 2Extraction Control (EC)Internal Positive Control (IPC)
Channel 3Salmonella spp.Yersinia enterocolitica
Channel 4Shigella spp./Enteroinvasive E.coli (EIEC)Listeria monocytogenes

The EasyScreen™ Bacterial Detection Kits are designed to be used in conjunction with EasyScreen™ Sample Processing Kits and include all reagents required for amplification of 100 reactions or 500 reactions in HT format.
