LANSING, Mich., Sept. 8, 2017 — Neogen Corporation has developed AccuClean® Advanced, an enhanced rapid protein test that delivers industry-leading speed and sensitivity for determining the cleanliness of food contact surfaces and equipment.
AccuClean Advanced is a simple, 10-second visual test that reveals detected protein residue through an easy-to-interpret color change. With a protein detection limit of 10 μg per sample, the test provides sensitive, reliable results.
“There is simply no easier, less expensive, or reliable method of quickly and accurately measuring protein residues on a surface than AccuClean Advanced,” said Ed Bradley, Neogen’s vice president of Food Safety. “It’s the perfect solution for many companies that want a quick indication of the effectiveness of their sanitation processes without the use of an instrument.”
AccuClean Advanced determines cleanliness by detecting any protein residues left behind from previously processed food and liquids. If no protein is detected, the solution in the bottom of the cup will remain copper-colored to indicate the surface is clean. A color change to gray indicates a low level of protein has been detected, while a change to green/blue or blue indicates a higher level of protein detected.
Neogen also offers AccuPoint® Advanced ATP Sanitation Monitoring System —the most sensitive and consistent sanitation monitoring test system available. The system features samplers with new technology to more consistently collect any potential residues left behind after sanitation efforts; an enhanced compact instrument to better detect any residues collected by the samplers; user-friendly data management software to organize and analyze the system’s test results; and new NeoNet™, which is a cloud-based software platform that gives food safety directors immediate access to ATP testing results from each of their facilities.
Neogen Corporation (Nasdaq: NEOG) develops and markets products 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, food allergens, drug residues, plant diseases and sanitation concerns.
