Neogen Launches Fully Quantitative Lateral Flow Test for Aflatoxin
Date:9/22/2011

LANSING, Mich., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) has developed a quick and easy new test for aflatoxin, a toxin considered by many to be the most potent, naturally-occurring carcinogen. The toxin is a by-product of mold growth in a wide range of commodities, including corn. Because it is a known severe threat to human and animal health, more than 100 countries have established regulatory limits for aflatoxin in commodities intended as human food or animal feed.

Neogen's new Reveal® Q+ for Aflatoxin combines the speed and simplicity of a lateral flow screening test, like a home pregnancy test, with the fully quantitative precision of a more demanding testing method. The new test delivers precise results ranging from 2 to 150 parts per billion (ppb) of aflatoxin after only 6 minutes.

"Reveal Q+ for Aflatoxin is the easiest test available for rapid, fully quantitative test results, and uses a more environmentally friendly ethanol extraction," said Ed Bradley, Neogen's vice president for Food Safety. "This innovative technology yields more accurate and reproducible results. Coupled with Neogen's AccuScan III reader, the Reveal Q+ system objectively reads, analyzes and stores test results.

"Reveal Q+ for Aflatoxin is the first in our new line of fully quantitative lateral flow tests for mycotoxins," Bradley continued. "Tests for DON and zearalenone are in the final stages of development. The new Reveal Q+ products add to Neogen's unmatched range of simple and accurate lateral flow, microwell, immunoaffinity column mycotoxin testing options — all of which are backed by the best technical and R&D support in the industry."

Reveal Q+ for Aflatoxin offers both room temperature incubation of the test strip and storage of the test kit — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space. The test requires only minimal equipment to achieve precise results and a simple low cost ethanol extraction process. Ethanol is the preferred extract solvent of some major grain handlers.

Neogen's AccuScan® III reader provides an easy method to objectively read, store, and analyze 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.

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.
