Quantitative method for enumeration of enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli.

Abstract

A rapid method was developed to quantify toxigenic Escherichia coli, using a membrane filter procedure. After filtration of samples, the membrane filter was first incubated on a medium selective for E. coli (24 h, 44 degrees C) and then transferred to tryptic soy agar (3%; 6 h, 37 degrees C). To assay for labile toxin-producing colonies, the filter was then… (More)
