Neogen offers users simple quantitative tests for mycotoxins with its new RevealQ+

Lansing, Mich. – Neogen Corporation has introduced Reveal Q+ for Zearalenone, a mycotoxin. The new test joins Neogen’s existing Reveal Q+ tests for aflatoxin and DON, a mycotoxin that often occurs in grains.

The company says the Reveal Q+ for Zearalenone can deliver precise results after six minutes ranging from 50 to 1,200 parts per billion (ppb) of zearalenone in corn, or 25-1,200 ppb of the mycotoxin in wheat.

Users can read the Reveal Q+ test strips in the company’s AccuScan III lateral flow test reader to deliver the precision of more demanding test methods.

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.


Neogen’s AccuScan III reader provides an easy method to objectively read, store, and analyze results from
Neogen’s line of lateral flow tests. AccuScan provides a permanent result that can be incorporated into a company’s food safety plan, such as HACCP.
