dc.description.abstract <p>The ability of magnetic immunocapture to enumerate Escherichia coli 0157.H7 in ground beef was investigated. Ground beef was inoculated with a known quantity of a five strain mixed culture of E. coli 0157.H7, and the population subsequently enumerated by re-circulating the ground beef sample with immuno-magnetic beads. Trypsin and Polyoxyethylene Sorbitan Monolaurate (tween 20) were added to the ground beef sample and allowed to incubate for one hour to achieve a higher recovery of the target bacteria. There was statistical difference (P<0.05) between the known population inoculated into the ground beef and the populations enumerated in the ground beef by the immunocapture method. The regression model showed that there is a linear relationship between the two groups. This model proves that the Pathatrix System can be used for the enumeration of E. coli 0157.H7 in ground beef.</p>
