Western researchers develop rapid test for E coli

A new rapid testing kit developed by researchers at Western University is revolutionizing food safety testing. The kit detects E. coli 0157, the same food-borne bacteria causing the current outbreak in the US and Canada linked to romaine lettuce. It has been approved by Health Canada and translated for commercial use. The first production lot of this assay was this summer and this kit is now making its way to food processing plants in North America.
