Qualitative Detection Of E.coli ssp. K99 (F5)
Test applicable to: Cattle
The FASTest E.coli-K99 Strip contains two unique monoclonal antibodies. One of these monoclonal antibodies is bonded to colloidal gold particles, the second is immobilised in the Test zone of the strip. If the stool sample extract contains K99 main pilar antigens these will form an antigen-antibody complex with the gold particles.
Fast Aetiological Diagnostics
As this complex migrates along the Test zone of the membrane to the immobilised capture antibody, a pink-purple line is formed indicating a positive test result. The remaining conjugate migrates to a second antibody on the Control zone of the strip forming a second pink-purple line. This indicates the correct performance of the test.
Samples can be stored for up to 2 days at +2ºC to +8ºC. For longer storage period the faecal suspension can be stored for several months at -20ºC.
