Abstract [en]

Pathogenic E. coli such as VTEC can cause serious diseases to humans. A detection method for VTEC based on realtime-PCR has been developed by EU-RL VTEC (European Union Reference Laboratory VTEC) and the National Food Administration. In this master thesis I have optimized and validated a part of the method which detects serotypes of VTEC. During optimization the primer concentration, probe concentration and annealing temperature were evaluated for a more sensitive detection. Validation showed that the PCR-reaction is both effective and sensitive (LOD100). Validation of the whole method did not give any significant results due to the fact the sensitivity (LOD50) could not be determined.
