Neogen Corporation has added to its line of unequaled simple, quick, and fully quantitative tests for mycotoxins with the introduction of Reveal® Q+ for Zearalenone. The new test joins Neogen’s existing Reveal Q+ tests for aflatoxin and DON.
After only 6 minutes, Reveal Q+ for Zearalenone delivers precise results ranging from 50 to 1200 parts per billion (ppb) of zearalenone in corn, or 25-1200 ppb of the mycotoxin in wheat. Reveal Q+ test strips are read in Neogen’s AccuScan® III lateral flow test reader to deliver the precision of more demanding test methods.
“Like our Reveal Q+ tests for aflatoxin and DON, Reveal Q+ for Zearalenone is the easiest test available for rapid, fully quantitative test results,” said Neogen’s Bridgett Wynkoop. “This innovative technology yields more accurate and reproducible results than other testing methods for zearalenone. The new Reveal Q+ products only add to Neogen’s unmatched range of simple and accurate lateral flow, microwell, immunoaffinity column mycotoxin testing options — all of which are backed by the best technical and R&D support in the industry.”
Reveal Q+ for Zearalenone offers both room temperature incubation of the test strip and storage of the test kit — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space. The test requires only minimal equipment to achieve precise results and uses a simple, low cost ethanol extraction process. Ethanol is the preferred extraction solvent of many major grain handlers.
