Neogen Launches Revolutionary New Mycotoxin Tests

Neogen Corporation has announced the launch of a revolutionary complete new line of quick and easy tests for detection of the six significant mycotoxins in a format that uses only a water-based common extraction.

The Reveal® Q+ MAX format offers significant cost and time savings as it eliminates the need to use hazardous solvents in the testing process, and enables testers to test the same common sample extract for each of the six major mold toxins. Neogen’s new Reveal Q+ MAX tests for deoxynivalenol, fumonisin, zearalenone and T-2/HT-2 toxin join the previously available Reveal Q+ MAX tests for aflatoxin and ochratoxin.

Individually, each of the six Reveal Q+ MAX test kits offer advantages over all competitive products. Among these, the line’s test for aflatoxin offers the highest cross-reactivity for the four major aflatoxins (B1, B2, G1 and G2) — ensuring there are no false negatives; its test for zearalenone is the fastest available; and its test for ochratoxin is the only lateral flow test strip validated to test green coffee for the mycotoxin.
