Rapid Detection of Shigella Species in Environmental Sewage by an Immunocapture PCR with Universal Primers

By Xuanxian Peng, Wen Luo, Jianying Zhang, Sanying Wang and Shengcai Lin


In the present study, we developed a quick, highly specific method for detection of Shigella species by combining immunocapturing of the bacteria and a universal primer PCR. The method drastically enhances test sensitivity, and it can be used not only for identification of Shigella species in the environment but also for rapid detection of other pathogens
