Date:1/12/2009

LANSING, Mich., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) has received approval from the FDA and National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS) for its quick and easy BetaStar(R)US test for dairy antibiotics in milk. This approval allows milk producers and processors in the United States to use Neogen's new test to comply with FDA regulations that require the mandatory testing of milk for dairy antibiotics.

Neogen's newly approved BetaStar(R) US test detects dairy antibiotic residues in the beta-lactam group (i.e., penicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, cephapirin, cloxacillin, and penicillin G). BetaStar US is an extremely simple dipstick test that requires only minimal training and equipment to produce consistently accurate results.

"This approval process was very thorough, and proves that our new test is fully capable of delivering the accurate results that milk producers and processors demand," said Ed Bradley, Neogen's vice president for Food Safety. "BetaStar US was designed specifically for our domestic market, and is a new version of our BetaStar test that is a market leader in approximately 40 countries around the world."

BetaStar US is one of the fastest dairy antibiotic tests available, and can be used on the farm, tanker, or in the laboratory. BetaStar US had previously earned an important approval from the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC-RI No. 030802) after rigorous testing.

Antibiotics have been used in cows for many years to treat such common infections as mastitis.
