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 hygiene monitoring programme.
Neogen’s Integrated Mycotoxin Monitoring Programme approach combines state-of-the art diagnostic products with both ring trials and reference material programmes as well as world class training and certification of technicians.
Neogen’s AOAC approved AccuPoint® Advanced Hygiene Verification System provides instant cleaning efficacy verification while collecting data from test results for later analysis. The AccuPoint Advanced Samplers are engineered for optimal sample accuracy and consistency. 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.
If you are looking for a contract laboratory service partner, Neogen’s UK based food testing laboratory offers analysis for allergens, GMO, Marine Biotoxins, Mycotoxins, Norovirus and Meat Speciation. We can offer a variety of turnaround times and our continual investment in new technologies ensures our range of UKAS accredited testing addresses existing and emerging food safety testing requirements.
Neogen offers the industry’s most complete line of FGIS-approved mycotoxin test kits. Our new Reveal® Q+ MAX line allows users to extract using an aqueous extraction from a single sample, and test for any of six different mycotoxins. Our Reveal Q+ MAX and Reveal Q+ lines deliver precise and accurate results in a matter of minutes, using minimal extra equipment. The Reveal lines offer a room temperature incubation and storage — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space. Neogen also has a full line of high-volume microwell ELISA mycotoxin kits. Our complete line of lateral flow and ELISA kits allows a user to choose the format that best fits their laboratory workflow.
Because of its ease of use and clarity of result, many companies prefer to utilise our self-contained protein detection tests for their hygiene monitoring programmes. 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 colour to indicate the relative level of protein detected on a sampled surface.
After 10 seconds, the solution is compared to a colour comparison chart for interpretation. If no protein is detected, the solution in the bottom of the cup will remain copper-coloured to indicate the surface is clean. A colour change to grey indicates low level protein has been detected, while a change to green/blue or blue indicates a higher level of protein detected.
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.
