Abstract Two immunoassays (Shiga Toxin Chek and Shiga Toxin Quik Chek) and real-time PCR were used to detect Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli. For enriched culture, the sensitivity and specificity of the three methods ranged from 80.0\% to 98.2\% and 98.0\% to 100.0\%, respectively. STEC isolates were identified in 2.6\% of the 784 samples.
