Neogen Corporation has expanded its comprehensive line of food allergen test kits to include a test for sesame that can be used to screen samples at a set level, or provide precise quantitative results.
Neogen’s new Veratox® for Sesame Allergen test provides results in just 30 minutes after extraction. The new test can screen samples or provide results in the range of 2.5 to 25 parts per million (ppm), and has been validated for use in testing food products (e.g., spices and bakery products) and clean-in-place rinses.
“With the development of our new test for sesame, Neogen continues to provide the rapid and reliable allergen detection food producers have come to expect from us,” says Neogen’s Jennifer Baker. “Regulators in both Europe and Canada have identified sesame as an allergen of concern. Neogen strives to help food manufacturers ensure that an unlabeled—and potentially dangerous—allergen does not make its way into a food product.”
The Veratox for Sesame test kit utilizes the successful format of Neogen’s previously released quantitative food allergen tests and requires similar laboratory equipment. The new test has received an excellent response and consistent results from independent laboratories.
