The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration has approved Neogen’s Reveal Q+ test for zearalenone, which enables a fully quantitative lateral flow strip test to be used for official testing in the national grain inspection system.

After six minutes, the test delivers results ranging from 50 to 1,200 parts per billion of zearalenone in corn, or 25 to 1,200 ppb of the mycotoxin in wheat. Reveal Q+ test strips are read in Neogen’s AccuScan III lateral flow test reader to deliver the precision of more demanding test methods. It also offers both room temperature incubation of the test strip and storage of the test kit — eliminating the need for an incubator and refrigeration space.
