SHIGA TOXIN QUIK CHEK

T30625

The SHIGA TOXIN QUIK CHEK™ test is a rapid membrane enzyme immunoassay for the simultaneous qualitative detection and differentiation of Shiga toxin 1 (Stx1) and Shiga toxin 2 (Stx2) in a single test device.

It is intended for use with human fecal samples from patients with gastrointestinal symptoms to aid in the diagnosis of disease caused by Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC). It may be used with fecal specimens, or broth or plate cultures derived from fecal specimens.

  • Direct fecal specimen testing in a rapid assay format
  • Diagnosis up to 24 hours sooner than culture or other traditional methods
  • Differentiation of Stx1 and Stx2
  • Specific monoclonal detection of Stx1 and Stx2

Results in less than 30 minutes

Strong correlation with Vero cell cytotoxicity assay

Results indicators

  • The Stx1 reaction is examined visually for the appearance of a vertical blue line on the left side (“1”) of the Reaction Window.
  • The Stx2 reaction is examined visually for the appearance of a vertical blue line on the right side (“2”) of the Reaction Window.
  • A positive control reaction, indicated by a vertical dotted blue line under the “C” portion of the Reaction Window, confirms that the test is working properly and the results are valid.
