Production of monoclonal antibodies for the detection of enteropathogens in clinical and environmental specimens


The ability to detect the presence of pathogenic organisms in clinical specimens, food and water is extremely importat to reduce and/or prevent case of foodborne illness. Culture methods for bacterial detection are often lengthy, therefore rapid, sensitive, specific and simple methods of detection are needed. Rapid testing can provice processors with better quality assurance prorams, which in turn reduces the risk to consumers. If the co-agglutination technique can be optimized, it could be very useful to public health agencies to investigate, diagnose, and prevent foodborne illness outbreaks, Monoclonal antibody reagents formatted into rapid test systems (e.g. latex agglutionatio, ELISA, immunofluorescence, and immunomagnetic separation), can provide public health agencies with necessary diagnostic tolls to reduce the impact of food and water borne diseases.
