Details

Use this form to record testing for Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli.

This scheme focuses on raising awareness of:

  • the molecular methods used
  • the variations of the molecular methods used which can subsequently highlight differences in PT results obtained
  • the limitation of molecular methods available on the market
  • updates in ISO methods
