Immunocard STAT!® EHEC


Meridian Bioscience Immunocard STAT!® EHEC

One step lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Shiga-Toxin 1 & 2 produced by E. coli from stool specimens in broth enrichment.


Increased Detection and Increased Performance

  • Detects and differentiates between Shiga Toxin 1 and Shiga Toxin 2
  • The CDC estimates that half of all STEC infections are caused by non-O157 serotypes. SMAC culture will miss all non-O157 serotypes and has been shown to have a sensitivity as low as 50%.³
  • ImmunoCard STAT!® EHEC detects all Shiga Toxin producing E. coli, not just E. coli O157:H7

Follow Guideline Recommendations

  • CDC and JCAHO recommend that all stools be tested for Shiga Toxinproducing E.coli
  • Testing from an overnight growth of enrichment broth is recommended as the amount of free toxin may not be detectable from unenriched stool.
