E.COLI RAPID TEST
ENHANCE YOUR EXISTING
ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING WITH OUR E.COLI RAPID TEST
Our E.coli rapid test is part of the N-LightTM environmental monitoring series enables pathogen detection without the need for a laboratory. This test was developed with user-friendliness and versatility in mind, serving as a hygiene indicator on factory surfaces, tools, production machines and for employee hand hygiene. While avoiding the inconvenience of agar plates and cumbersome sample preparation, the E.coli rapid test provides reliable results after only 16 hours.
For customers already using the rapid tests for Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella Risk, N-LightTM E.coli rapid test may be seamlessly integrated into existing workflows. You can use test with the same NEMIS incubator and luminometer. In addition, N-LightTM E.coli rapid test enables immediate corrective actions, empowering quality managers to have a broad overview of the hygienic conditions.
UNLOCK THE HIDDEN POTENTIAL OF YOUR
Foodborne pathogens remain a critical challenge to public health all around the world. Escherichia coli and other Enterobacteriaceae represent a significant group of microorganisms to indicate areas with unfavourable hygiene conditions and potential facial contamination in foods. Escherichia coli mainly inhabits the lower intestinal tract of warm-blooded animals and transmits through the facial or oral route. Therefore, its presence in food should be avoided at all costs. Furthermore, studies reported that specific E. coli can even survive for extended periods and reproduce in extraintestinal environments. This suggests that the microorganism can integrate into indigenous microbial communities in food processing environments. Symptoms caused by this bacterium include not only diarrhea, but it is also known to cause sepsis and meningitis.
As a member of the facial Enterobacteriaceae group, E. coli serves as an alarm for the hygiene status of food processing facilities. It can indicate the presence of other harmful bacteria. You can use this test as a facial indicator of choice for monitoring and/ or controlling for:
poor hand hygiene
incoming materials (e.g., manure residues, soil, etc.)
inefficient killing steps within food processing
