Neogen develops improved test for total milk allergen

Neogen's new Reveal 3-D for Total Milk Allergen dairyfoods.comBy Neogen

LANSING, Mich. — Neogen has developed an improved version of its rapid lateral flow for total milk allergen, and expanded its comprehensive line of food allergen test kits to include a rapid lateral flow test for mustard.

Neogen’s new Reveal® 3-D for Total Milk Allergen provides results in just 5 minutes after extraction, detecting as little as 5 parts per million (ppm) of whey and casein protein residues. The new test has been validated for use in testing liquid food products (e.g., juices, sorbets, and soy and other non-dairy milk), environmental swabs, and clean-in-place rinses.

“The new Reveal 3-D Total Milk test combines the advantages of two of our other tests,” said Neogen’s Jennifer Baker. “Our Reveal 3-D for Casein test had the advantages of the 3-D technology and our two-line Reveal for Total Milk test detected both casein and whey milk proteins. The new Reveal 3-D for Total Milk Allergen test offers rapid time to results — only 5 minutes — simpler extraction, and a third line to indicate a very high level of milk protein is present instead of simply presence or absence, and it detects both casein and whey.”

The new Reveal 3-D for Mustard Allergen test kit is the same simple, quick and sensitive format as the total milk test, and is validated for use for testing environmental swabs, and clean-in-place rinses. Neogen offers a complementary Veratox® for Mustard Allergen test kit that is intended for the quantitative or qualitative analysis of mustard proteins in food products such as spices, sauces, dressings, meats, and clean-in-place rinses. Both mustard allergen test kits can be used for simple verification to support food allergen labeling requirements in the European Union and Canada.

The new tests add to Neogen’s extensive line of food allergen test kits, which includes rapid quantitative and screening tests for peanut, egg, milk, almond, gliadin (gluten), soy, mustard, walnut, sesame and hazelnut. Neogen is the recognized leader in the development and marketing of diagnostic tests to detect the inadvertent contamination of food with allergens that are not listed on the ingredient label.

Neogen’s food allergen testing products have been developed in close cooperation with the University of Nebraska’s Food Allergy Research and Resource Program, or FARRP. FARRP is a food industry and university partnership that was formed to provide research and resource tools to the food industry. It is a leading authority in training and educating the industry on allergen awareness.

Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) develops and markets products and services 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, ruminant by-products, drug residues, plant diseases and sanitation concerns.
