Food processors and associated laboratories can use the BAX® System as a quick and reliable method for detecting E. coli O157:H7 in a variety of foods, hemp and cannabis
flowers. This real-time PCR assay was designed to report yes/no results for the presence of E. coli O157:H7 at concentrations as low as 104 cfu/mL after enrichment. With a processing time of approximately 55 minutes in the BAX® System Q7 instrument, the method returns results with an accuracy that is comparable to culture methods, but with a significantly faster time to result. BAX® Systems are designed for use by qualified lab personnel who follow standard microbiology laboratory practice, including the safe handling and disposal of potentially pathogenic materials. The laboratory must comply with good laboratory practice (see ISO 7218 standard).
