AIM Immunological tools used to detect staphylococcal enterotoxins (SEs) in foods are numerous. The aim of this study was to evaluate, on naturally contaminated milk product samples, the performance of the Vidas SET2, in comparison to the Transia plate SET. METHODS AND RESULTS The Vidas SET2 was compared with the Transia plate SET on supernatants of(More)
At the end of 2009, six food poisoning outbreaks caused by staphylococci were reported in France. Soft cheese made from unpasteurized milk was found to be the common source of the outbreaks. Staphylococcal enterotoxin type E was identified and quantified in the cheese using both official and confirmatory methods of the European Union Reference Laboratory(More)
AIM To determine the performance of the Ridascreen® SET Total kit, after sample extraction and concentration by dialysis, with regard to its use in official controls for staphylococcal enterotoxins under European Regulation (EC) No. 2073/2005 modified. This study was conducted on naturally contaminated cheese samples and compared with the results of the(More)
Staphylococcal food poisoning is one of the most common food-borne diseases and results from the ingestion of staphylococcal enterotoxins (SEs) preformed in food by enterotoxigenic strains of Staphylococcus aureus. To date, more than 20 SEs have been described: SEA to SElV. All SEs have superantigenic activity whereas only a few have been proved to be(More)
An earlier intralaboratory validation study based on the EN ISO 16140 Standard conducted by the Community Reference Laboratory for coagulase-positive staphylococci including Staphylocococcus aureus showed that, after an extraction step using dialysis concentration, the Vidas SET2 detection kit could be used to screen staphylococcal enterotoxins in milk and(More)
