  • Escherichia coli O157:H7 is a foodborne pathogen that causes hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome. Positive identification of E. coli O157:H7 is made using biochemical tests and specific antisera or latex agglutination reagents for the O157 and H7 antigens. However, under certain conditions, some E. coli O157:H7 isolates can appear to be nonreactive with H7 antisera and may require multiple passages on motility medium to restore H7 antigenicity. In this study, we compared the… CONTINUE READING
