E. coli Antisera

SSI Diagnostica offer E.coli antisera for full serotyping of all O, K and H antigens plus the most frequent bacteriophages and F antigens. 

An important tool in diagnosis, monitoring and testing

Over the last few decades, a number of new E. coli pathogens have been identified, e.g. VTEC (verocytotoxin-producing E. coli) and EPEC (enteropathogenic E. coli). This has increased the need for E. coli serotyping, as an important tool in diagnosis, monitoring and testing.

Antisera from SSI Diagnostica are for in vitro use in human, veterinary and food laboratories. All antisera are produced in accordance with internationally recognised methods dating back to the time of Fritz Kauffmann, Ida Ørskov and Frits Ørskov, combined with the knowledge accumulated since then.

All antisera are polyclonal and are produced by immunising rabbits with well-defined reference strains. For antisera, wherever practicable, the reaction is made specific by absorption. All finished products are tested against a large number of strains.

  • Comprehensive antisera range to serotype all know E. Coli strains
  • High quality and technical support
  • CE-marked (except for the E. coli K antisera)

E. coli bacteriophages

Bacteriophages are viruses used for serotyping of E. coli capsules. It is the only way to serotype capsules which immunologically are closely related to animal cells. Hence, it is not possible to produce polyclonal antibodies against them.

E. coli F4 and F5 antisera

E. coli F antisera consist of polyclonal antibodies produced in rabbits. The antisera are used for serotyping of E. coli fimbria antigens. E. coli expressing fimbria is associated with ETEC, and is a common problem in infants and pigs.

E. coli OK O antisera for live culture produced in sheep

E. coli OK O antiserum consist of polyclonal antibodies produced in sheep. The antiserum is used for screening of O157 which are among the most pathogenic E. coli, including EPEC and VTEC. E. coli OK O antiserum provide an answer within 10 seconds. Therefore it is an important part of quick diagnostic methods.
