Escherichia coli is the predominant nonpathogenic facultative flora of the human intestine. Some E. coli strains, however,
have developed the ability to cause disease of the gastrointestinal, urinary or central nervous system in even the most robust human hosts. Diarrheagenic strains of E. coli can be divided into at least six different categories with corresponding distinct pathogenic schemes.

In general, these organisms probably represent the most common cause of pediatric diarrhea worldwide. Several distinct clinical syndromes accompany infection with diarrheagenic E. coli categories, including traveler's diarrhea (entero-toxigenic E. coli), hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic-uremic syndrome (enterohemorrhagic E. coli), persistent diarrhea (enteroaggregative E. coli) and watery diarrhea of infants (entero-pathogenic E. coli).

Escherichioses PCR kit allows qualitative detection and differentiation of diarrheagenic iE.coli (EPEC, ETEC, EIEC, EHEC and EAgEC) DNA in environmental and clinical samples. Extracted DNA from samples contains also Internal Control that allows to check DNA extraction and amplification processes.

For detection, 3 channels - FAM/Green, JOE/Yellow/HEX and ROX/Orange are needed.
