New E.coli  O157 Enrichment Medium from IDG

International Diagnostics Group plc announces the addition of EC Broth to
its range of LAB M media. This medium compliments the already extensive
range of products offered by IDG for the isolation of Escherichia coli O157
from food and clinical samples. This range includes not only O157 Broth
(mTSB), Sorbitol MacConkey (CT-SMAC) and the corresponding selective
supplements but also CaptivateTM O157 for the immunomagnetic separation now
recommended for many samples.
EC Broth (Escherichia coli Broth) was originally formulated for the
differentiation and enumeration of coliform organisms in water and
wastewater. More recently it has been adopted as an efficient enrichment
medium for the detection of E.coli O157 and in particular is recommended for
use with immunomagnetic separation (IMS) and Elisa systems for the detection
of this important pathogen.
In a recent evaluation carried out on behalf of MAFF EC Broth gave both
superior recovery and selectivity when compared to a number of other
selective broths for E.coli O157.
