Neogen Corp. launched the Amplified Nucleic Single Temperature Reaction isothermal pathogen detection system for petfood safety, along with its first assay for Salmonella at a conference in Dallas, Texas, USA.
The Amplified Nucleic Single Temperature Reaction system has a 10-minute assay and a small-format reader, Neogen says, as well as incorporates advances in DNA detection technology. The new system comes complete with a reader / incubator, laptop with software, lysis system and pipettes.
“Food Safety is a global concern, so we created the ANSR system to be easy to deploy and integrate into a workflow â€“ it can address the requirements for in-plant testing irrespective of your location” said Lon Bohannon, Neogen president. “With increasing regulations, there is a dramatic need in the market for a pathogen detection system which is fast, economical and user friendly.”
