A comparison of the IMViCE series with conventional methods for the confirmation of Escherichia coli in dairy products

Authors: B.C. Cooke, S.M. Edwards, T.W. Gleeson and A. Thomson


One hundred and fifty eight presumptive Escherichia coli, isolated during routine surveillance of dairy products, were confirmed by two systems, IMViCE and conventional methods, to assess the extent of atypical E. coli biotypes. Eijkman-negative E. coli were found to constitute the major proportion of atypical biotypes (18% of total confirmed). It is proposed that the Eijkman procedure be no longer used as a screening technique. The procedure should be weighted equally with the remaining four IMViCE tests.
