16S Challenge: Neogen talks about the 16S Challenge in ‘Food Safety Matters’ podcast

In a bonus episode, Neogen’s Joe Heinzelmann discusses the practical applications of 16S metagenomics for food safety in Food Safety Magazine’s “Food Safety Matters” podcast. Listen in here.

Heinzelmann explains how food producers are using 16S metagenomics to identify spoilage organisms in food production facilities — and introduces the 16S Challenge. This program allows food […]

Food safety resource: Food Safety Matters podcast

Foodborne allergen concerns aren’t going away any time soon, but sometimes things change — like scientific knowledge or allergen-related regulations — and finding new information can become difficult. Fortunately, there are great resources out there for updates on the state of the industry.

For example, Food Safety Magazine produces its own podcast, Food Safety Matters […]

Podcast: Listeria Right Now: Innovations in Food Safety

Earlier this year, Neogen introduced an innovative test for food safety: Listeria Right Now. It’s a new environmental Listeria test that offers molecular-level accuracy — meaning low levels of many strains, including L. monocytogenes, can be detected — without the need for enrichment. It takes less than an hour to get results.

The advantages of metagenomics over genome sequencing

Earlier this week, Neogen’s own Joe Heinzelmann was a special guest on Food Safety Magazine’s podcast, “Food Safety Matters.”

Heinzelmann dropped by to talk about metagenomics, next generation sequencing (NGS) and whole genome sequencing (WGS). This technology can help the food processing industry detect spoilage organisms within facilities, eliminate them, and reduce the possibility of […]
