Identification and serotyping of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli during foodborne outbreaks can aid in matching clinical, food, and environmental isolates when trying to identify the source of illness and ultimately food contamination. Herein we describe a Luminex microbead-based suspension array to identify the O serogroup of the ten most clinically relevant STECs: O26, O45, O91, O103, O111, O113, O121, O128, O145, and O157. The use of PCR followed by Luminex xMAP® technology enables… CONTINUE READING
