Rapid detection of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli is important for its successful treatment. We have evaluated the immunochromatographic Duopath Verotoxin-test for detection of Shiga toxins, in comparison with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and polymerase chain reaction, on 240 clinical human stool samples. The Duopath-test showed a lower sensitivity and specificity.
