Neogen develops new tests for mycotoxins

Neogen Europe has developed a range of simple tests to detect precise amounts of mycotoxins in grain and feed samples.

Neogen’s Reveal Q+ testing kits combine the speed and simplicity of a lateral flow test with the fully quantitative precision of a more demanding testing method. All a tester has to do is place a Reveal Q+ test strip into the sample extract and then insert the strip into our Accuscan reader to receive precise results. Kits can be both stored and used at room temperature eliminating the need for both an incubator and refrigeration and deliver results in as little as 3 minutes.

The tests require only minimal equipment and simple extraction processes to achieve precise results. Neogen’s AccuScan Pro and AccuScan III readers provide an easy method to objectively read, store, and analyse results from Neogen’s line of lateral flow tests. AccuScan provides a permanent result that can be incorporated into a company’s food safety plan, such as HACCP.

The USDA’s Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) has currently verified the performance of Neogen’s simple and accurate tests for aflatoxin, DON, zearalenone, and fumonisin.
