Neogen Launches Fully Quantitative Lateral Flow Test for DON
Date:1/3/2012

LANSING, Mich., Jan. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Neogen Corporation has developed a new test for deoxynivalenol (DON) that combines the speed and simplicity of a lateral flow test with the fully quantitative precision of a more demanding testing method. The presence of the mold toxin DON in certain grains is a major concern to producers of animal feed and human food.

Neogen's new Reveal® Q+ for DON delivers precise results ranging from 0.3 to 6 parts per million (ppm) of DON after only 3 minutes, following an extraction procedure that only requires water. Reveal Q+ test strips are read in Neogen's AccuScan® III lateral flow test reader to deliver exact results.

"Reveal Q+ for DON is the fastest and easiest fully quantitative test available for DON," said Ed Bradley, Neogen's vice president for Food Safety. "This innovative technology yields more accurate and reproducible results than other testing methods for DON. Coupled with Neogen's AccuScan III portable, hand-held reader, the Reveal Q+ system objectively reads, analyzes and stores test results.

"The new Reveal Q+ products only add to Neogen's unmatched range of simple and accurate lateral flow, microwell, and immunoaffinity column mycotoxin testing options — all of which are backed by the best technical and R&D support in the industry," Bradley continued.

In September, Neogen launched Reveal Q+ for Aflatoxin, which delivers precise results ranging from 2 to 150 parts per billion (ppb) of aflatoxin after only 6 minutes.

Reveal Q+ testing products offer room temperature incubation of the test strip and room temperature storage of the test kit — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space. The tests require minimal equipment to achieve precise results, and the aflatoxin test utilizes a simple, low-cost ethanol extraction process. Ethanol often is the preferred extraction solvent of major grain handlers.

Neogen's AccuScan III hand-held reader provides an easy method to objectively read, store, and analyze results from Neogen's line of lateral flow tests. AccuScan provides a permanent record that can be incorporated into a company's food safety plan, such as HACCP.

Neogen Corporation develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. The company's Food Safety Division markets dehydrated culture media, and diagnostic test kits to detect foodborne bacteria, natural toxins, genetic modifications, food allergens, drug residues, plant diseases and sanitation concerns. Neogen's Animal Safety Division markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, nutritional supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
