82203-1Escherichia coli Stx1 and Stx2 toxin stx1+stx2 genes [Presence] in Stool by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

Qualitative detection of nucleic acid sequences in the Escherichia coli shiga-like toxin stx1 and stx2 genes in stool specimens by PCR and non-probe detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This assay does not differentiate between the two toxins. This term was created for, but not limited in use to, the submitter's test kit, FilmArray Gastrointestinal Panel (GI) v2.1.

Part Description

LP204844-7   Escherichia coli Stx1+Stx2 toxin stx1+stx2 genes
Shiga toxin producing E. coli (STEC) is also known as enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) and verotocix E. coli (VTEC). STEC are strains capable of producing Shiga toxin and typically cause blood diarrhea. Hemolytic-uremic syndrome complicates 6-9 percent of STEC infections overall and about 15 percent of STEC infections in children under age 10. STEC strains are typically have one or both stx genes that encode for Shiga Toxins 1 and 2. Source: LOINC partner 1
