Bacterial Toxins

Staphyloccocal Enterotoxin

The main causative agents of food poisoning are enterotoxins of Staphylococcus aureus next to the intoxication with Salmonella. Among the strains of Staphylococcus aureus other Staphylococci species as S. hyicus and S. intermedius are able to produce one or more heat stable proteins which behave like enterotoxins.

Available parameters:

  • Total staphylococcal toxins
  • Staphylococcal toxin A, B, C, D and E


  • Specific 
    Detects the mainly occuring staphylococcal enterotoxins (A-E) in food samples.
  • Simple
    Proven Sandwich-ELISA technology in microtiter plate format.

  • Approved
    Official European Screening "Method for Staphylococcal Enterotoxins in Food".

RIDASCREEN® SET Total is a sandwich enzyme immunoassay for the detection of total staphylococcal enterotoxins (SET) A, B, C, D and E in fluid and solid foods as well as in bacterial cultures.
