Neogen® offers the feed and grain industry the most comprehensive line of product safety and grain testing solutions, including our rapid quantitative line of mycotoxin test kits for aflatoxin testing, DON or vomitoxin testing, fumonisin testing, ochratoxin testing, and zearalenenone testing. Rapid test kits for feedborne pathogens, including E. coli O157, Salmonella, and Listeria are also available along with Neogen’s market-leading ATP testing system — a crucial component in any sanitation verification program.
Neogen’s Integrated Mycotoxin Monitoring Program approach combines state-of-the art diagnostic products with both check-sample and reference material programs as well as world class training and certification of technicians.
The company’s Monday Mycotoxin and Crop Reports have become THE source for critical information on mycotoxin levels, crop conditions and other important considerations during the growing and harvest seasons. Neogen welcomes all testing parties to join the Mycotoxin Reporting Network by either contacting a Neogen sales representative or downloading the NeoMyco app for smart phone submission of testing results.
Neogen’s AOAC approved AccuPoint® Advanced Sanitation Verification System provides instant cleaning efficacy verification while collecting data from test results for later analysis.

Data Manager software provides the manager with important reports on trends and potential areas for focus, giving a complete ATP testing solution for feed and grains.
Neogen’s offers the industry’s most complete line of GIPSA-approved, mycotoxin tests. Our new Reveal Q+ line can deliver precise results after only minutes. Following a simple extraction the user combines the extract with a diluent, inserts a Reveal Q+ test strip, then reads the strip in Neogen’s AccuScan® Gold reader to receive precise results. Reveal Q+ offers both room temperature incubation and storage — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space. The test requires only minimal equipment to achieve precise results and a simple extraction process.
Ractopamine is a beta-agonist drug added to feed to promote lean muscle in animals raised for meat. While many countries allow the use of ractopamine within specified limits, including the United States, regulatory agencies in other countries have banned residues of the drug, including those in the European Union, Russia, and China.
Neogen’s Ractopamine Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests are intended to screen cattle and swine samples, and swine and turkey feed samples for the presence of ractopamine. The tests are one-step screening tests that easily detect the presence of ractopamine at set levels. The ractopamine screening test for swine screens at 2.5 parts per billion (ppb); the test for cattle screens at 1 ppb; and the test for swine and turkey feed screens at 0.5 or 4 parts per million (ppm).
Neogen also offers its Ractopamine Microwell ELISA to test cattle and swine urine and tissue samples.
