LANSING, MICH. — The Neogen Corp. has introduced the ANSR pathogen detection system. The ANSR platform uses an isothermal amplification test method that amplifies the DNA of any bacteria present in food and environmental samples to detectable levels in 10 minutes.

The ANSR for Salmonella is the first pathogen test available for the system. The company said additional tests for the ANSR system currently are in development for Listeria spp, Listeria monocytogenes and non-O157 STECs.

“ANSR provides the food industry both the DNA-definitive test results they need, and the much easier and quicker methodology they want,” said James Herbert, chief executive officer and chairman and Neogen. “Recent food recalls have emphasized the point that the food industry needs easier, quicker and more precise pathogen tests to lessen the chance that contaminated food products ever reach the consumer. Neogen’s ANSR is that new technology.”
