  1. Detection of Escherichia coli O157 : H7 in water form coliform enrichment cultures.

    Article - En anglais

    Environmental water samples were seeded with Escherichia coli O157 : H7 and the bacterium was recovered using a traditional coliform enrichment procedure followed by selective plating on sorbitol MacConkey agar and biochemical and serological characterization.

    Assays for bêta-glucuronidase and glutamate decarboxylase were found to be useful procedures for screening suspected isolates.

    The organism was not recovered in a survey of various water samples.
