An investigation on clonal diversity of Escherichia coli from cattle in smallholdings while using selective media for O157 strains

, Jens Christensen &
An investigation was carried out to verify the diversity of shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157 strains isolated from fecal materials originated from smallholders’ cattle while using cefixime-tellurite added sorbitol MacConkey (CT-SMAC) agar. The diversities among the sorbitol non-fermenter from the said materials were verified by conventional cultural methods and application of some molecular diagnostic tools. 44 isolates were found sorbitol non fermenter in conventional culture methods. Thirty six (~7%) of the 44 isolates...
