The Biomerica E. coli Vero (Shiga) toxin ELISA is intended for the qualitative determination of verotoxin in fecal specimens. This assay is intended FOR IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC USE ONLY. Escherichia coli bacteria are present in the healthy flora of the intestines of humans and farm animals. They, in themselves, can be indicative of fecal contamination in food and water. However, certain strains of E. coli produce a family of closely related cytotoxins known as verotoxins (VT) or shigatoxins. The two primary verotoxins are verotoxins 1 and 2 (VT1 and VT2). Because of the similarity of these verotoxins to the Shiga toxin of Shigella dysenteriae, they are also referred to as shiga-like toxins 1 and 2.
