Neogen develops new test to detect salmonella
Neogen, a US-based developer of products for food and animal safety, has developed a new pathogen test, ANSR, which can identify salmonella in food and environmental samples within ten minutes.
In addition, new test can also provide DNA-definitive results for salmonella in as little as ten hours from the time the sample is taken. ANSR requires only a single reaction temperature, which completely eliminates the time-consuming heating and cooling cycles of the 20-year-old polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods, the company said.
Neogen CEO and chairman James Herbert said that ANSR provides the food industry both the DNA-definitive test results they need, and the much easier and quicker methodology they want.
"Recent food recalls have emphasized the point that the food industry needs easier, quicker and more precise pathogen tests to lessen the chance that contaminated food products ever reach the consumer. Neogen's ANSR is that new technology," Herbert added.
The company plans to launch the new test next week at the joint Food Marketing Institute, American Meat Institute, United Fresh and National Association of State Departments of Agriculture conference in Dallas, US.
