Escherichia coli (E. coli) are the leading cause of diarrheal diseases worldwide, especially among children. E. coli infection primarily occurs through food or drinking water contaminated with animal or human feces. The bacteria produce Shiga toxin that causes gastrointestinal (GI) infections with symptoms including bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Though the infections are usually cured in a few days, at times, they may lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome. This syndrome, if untreated, can result in kidney failure. E. coli tests are used to diagnose GI infections using stool samples. These tests can be performed using molecular diagnostic kits and immunoassays.
