Neogen® offers the food service industry the most comprehensive line of food safety tests and solutions. This includes a complete line of food allergen and foodborne pathogen tests, as well as quality indicator microbes, including tests for yeast and moulds, coliforms, and total plate count. Neogen also offers rapid tests for hygiene monitoring, including a market-leading ATP testing system for the food service industry, AccuPoint® Advanced.
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. Neogen’s food allergen tests can detect the target allergen in ingredients, liquids, clean-in-place rinses, finished foods, and on environmental surfaces.
Neogen offers a range of simple, easy-to-use food handling safety solutions for ATP hygiene verification including AccuPoint Advanced Hygiene Verification System. The AccuPoint Advanced system is approved by the AOAC Research Institute and provides instant cleaning efficacy verification while collecting data from test results for later analysis. With the AccuPoint Advanced system, food service professionals can know immediately whether a food contact surface was cleaned properly. The AccuPoint Advanced samplers are engineered for optimal sample accuracy and consistency and the Data Manager Software provides the manager with important reports on trends and potential areas for focus.
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 three primary platforms for rapid pathogen detection – the Reveal® line of lateral flow strips, the ANSR® molecular detection system and the GeneQuence® line of RNA-based, microwell tests. The Reveal line is particularly well suited for food service application due to its ease of operation, limited equipment required, low startup and testing costs and quick time to result.
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.
