AOAC International has evaluated and approved the level-3 modification of the Bio-Rad iQ-Check Escherichia coli O157:H7 and iQ-Check Shiga toxin-producing E. coli VirX and SerO real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection kits to extend these kits to different types of samples. To obtain this approval through the AOAC Performance Tested Methods Program, a validation study was performed that demonstrated no differences between the iQ-Check methods and the reference methods.
