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.

To swab or not to swab, that is the question: environmental swabs vs. sponges

A frequent question we at Neogen hear from sanitation testing customers is, “When should I use a swab vs. a sponge for collecting my environmental samples?” Today, we’ll take a look at the difference between the two sample collection tools.

Typically, routine environmental monitoring in the food industry is done with sample collection sponges — […]

Listeria Right Now™: top questions about its technology

Neogen has received a lot of questions since introducing the Listeria Right Now™ system this past July at the International Association for Food Protection’s annual meeting. The system is an environmental Listeria test that features molecular-level accuracy with no need for enrichment. The total time to result? Under one hour.

We’ve seen many different ways […]

Neogen develops fastest Listeria test with no enrichment

Neogen Corporation has developed an innovative test that detects Listeria in environmental samples in under 60 minutes — without the need to enrich samples.

Neogen’s new Listeria Right Now™ test system can detect all species of Listeria, including the pathogenic L. monocytogenes, in under 60 minutes through their ribosomal RNA (rRNA). The system’s effectiveness has […]
