Neogen® offers the beverage industry the most comprehensive line of easy-to-use environmental monitoring and product safety solutions. This includes a variety of media for the detection of indicator and spoilage organisms, including liquid media ampoules and disposable cellulose membrane filters. Dehydrated culture media as well as rapid micro test kits for quality indicator microbes, such as yeast and mold, coliforms, and total plate count are also available. Neogen also specializes in tests for food allergens, drug residues, and sanitation verification equipment.
Neogen offers screening and quantitative food allergen test kits to detect almond, β-Lactoglobulin (BLG), casein, cashew, crustacea, egg, gliadin/gluten, hazelnut, mustard, peanut, pecan, pistachio, sesame, soy, total milk, tree nuts and walnut residues. Reveal® 3-D screening tests are designed for routine monitoring to verify that your process is under control and to avoid cross-contamination in ingredients, liquids, clean-in-place rinses, finished foods, and on environmental surfaces.
Instantly verify the cleanliness of your facility and your equipment with the help of Neogen’s AOAC approved AccuPoint® Advanced Sanitation Verification System. The AOAC approval confirms that AccuPoint Advanced accurately recovers adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from a variety of surfaces, including lines and liquids, and prevents cross contamination of bacteria in your facility. Because ATP is not uniformly distributed on surfaces, it is important to use a system that can both find and recover ATP from surfaces and liquids.
Neogen’s line of Acumedia® dehydrated culture media is the foundation for many tests leading to better process control. Standard and custom formulations using the highest quality ingredients are available to aid in testing for spoilage indicators including yeasts and molds, pathogens and coliforms. Acumedia products are produced in FDA-registered facilities.
Neogen offers several platforms for performing microbial analysis of liquids, and the microbiological testing of water. This includes Neogen’s filter tests, which are a combination of membrane filtration and ampouled media. This extremely convenient and easy-to-use product features a variety of media for the detection of many indicator and spoilage organisms. In addition, our simple, easy-to-use Colitag™ product is a powdered substrate that comes in a single-use blister pack. After a 16–24 hour incubation, the sample changes color in the presence of coliforms and fluoresces in the presence of E. coli. Furthermore, Neogen’s line of Soleris tests detects routine micro and spoilage organisms in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.
Because of its ease of use and clarity of result, many companies prefer to utilize our self-contained protein detection tests for their sanitation monitoring programs. AccuClean® Advanced is intended to be used as a simple method to determine the cleanliness of food contact surfaces and equipment. AccuClean Advanced is housed in a fully self-contained cartridge that once activated, changes color to indicate the relative level of protein detected on a sampled surface.
After 10 seconds, the solution is compared to a color comparison chart for interpretation. If no protein is detected, the solution in the bottom of the cup will remain copper-colored to indicate the surface is clean. A color change to gray indicates low level protein has been detected, while a change to green/blue or blue indicates a higher level of protein detected.
