Salmonella & Shiga Toxin Producing E.Coli (STEC) Test

Method Description

The Salmonella & Shiga Toxin Producing Escherichia coli (STEC) detection method using real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) involves the molecular analysis of genetic material to identify the presence of Salmonella and STEC DNA in a sample. This highly sensitive and specific technique allows for the rapid and accurate detection of these pathogens in various matrices. Leveraging the specificity of DNA sequences, qPCR provides valuable insights by aiding in the early identification of contamination, supporting quality control measures, and ensuring the safety of products for consumers.
