The ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is a widely used application for detecting and quantifying proteins and antigens from various samples. Target-specific ELISA kits are available from a variety of manufacturers and can help streamline your immunodetection experiments.
E. coli ELISA kits are assays designed to detect markers expressed by the bacterium, Escherichia coli. A Gram-negative facultative anaerobe, it is commonly found in the gut microbiome of healthy humans. However, some serotypes, such as O157, are pathogenic. E. coli colonization and production of toxins and virulence factors can cause food poisoning, meningitis, and infections in the gastrointestinal and urinary tracts. E. coli is a popular host organism for recombinant DNA technology. Visit the supplier page for more information about detection target, range, and reactivity.
