Application Note: Increase your E. coli O157:H7 testing confidence with the Assurance GDS EHEC method
27 February 2020

The Assurance® GDS System is a proven genetic platform which uses proprietary magnetic particles and a unique concentration device, the Assurance® GDS PickPen™, to capture E. coli O157:H7 from an enriched sample, separating it from inhibitory background materials and ensuring valid PCR reactions for all samples.  While other molecular methods rely on sensitivity compromising dilution protocols to prevent failed reactions, PickPen™ IMS technology improves assay sensitivity and detection by concentrating E. coli O157:H7.  Thus, removing the risk associated with matrix variability and increasing user confidence in test results.
