Neogen Europe Develops New Mycotoxin Tests

Neogen Europe Ltd. have introduced two new tests to detect hazardous toxins in grains, wine, nuts and coffee. Marketing has begun in Europe and the products will soon be available in the United States and other worldwide markets.

The diagnostic tests for aflatoxin and ochratoxin were developed at Neogen's European headquarters in Ayr, Scotland.

The new tests are immunoaffinity columns that capture toxins from food and animal feed samples for analysis by laboratory instruments. Neogen, perhaps the largest worldwide producer of natural toxin tests, has produced and marketed tests in immunoassay formats for many years. Neogen introduced a rapid dipstick format in early July.

This newest column format provides customers a third option to rapidly and accurately test for hazardous toxins affecting worldwide food and animal feeds.
