Food processors and associated laboratories can use the BAX® System STEC suite as a quick and reliable method for detecting pathogenic Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) in a variety of foods, hemp, and cannabis flowers. Each real-time PCR assay in the STEC suite is designed to report clear yes/no results at concentrations as low as 10 CFU/mL after enrichment. The screening assay detects the STEC virulence genes (stx1, 4 stx2, and eae) with a simple, single-stage enrichment; two-panel assays can then use the same lysate to determine if a STEC-screening positive is also positive for one of the top six STEC serogroups (E. coli O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, and O145). With a processing time of approximately 55 minutes in the BAX® System Q7 instrument, the method returns results 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). Field of use: Data obtained from the BAX® System should not be used for human diagnostic or human treatment purposes. Equipment is not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration or any other U.S or non-U.S. regulatory agency for use in human diagnostics or treatment. The BAX® System should not be used as the sole basis for assessing the safety of products for release to consumers. The information generated is only to be used in conjunction with the user’s regular quality assurance program. Not approved for clinical diagnosis. Use for research and development, quality assurance, and quality control under the supervision of technically qualified persons.

KA HADALKA

The BAX® System method includes sample enrichment procedures that nourish the growth of potential pathogens to detectable levels. Because pathogens can cause human llness, appropriate safety precautions must be taken when handling samples, media, reagents, glassware, and other supplies and equipment that could be contaminated with potentially pathogenic bacteria. Reagents used with the BAX® System assays should pose no hazards when used as directed. Before using this product, please review the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) included with your BAX® System purchase and also available at www.hygiena.com. Refer to your site practices for the safe handling of materials at extreme temperatures.
SHURUUDAHA BARNAAMIJKA
Before using this assay for the first time, install the most current version of the BAX® System software, then run a calibration report to check that “Real Time STEC Screen stx, eae”, “Real-Time STEC Screen stx only”, “Real-Time STEC Panel 1 O26, O111, O121” and “Real Time STEC Panel 2 O45, O103, O145” appears in the list of calibration files. See “Troubleshooting Calibration” in the BAX® System User Guide for details. If the report list does not contain these targets you must recalibrate the Q7 instrument to load the required dyes. Be sure to allow enough time to complete the calibration (about 1.5 to 2 hours) before starting the assay. For instructions and tips on calibrating the instrument, see the BAX® System User Guide.
