NeoSeek™ Services

Neogen is bringing genomics to food safety with NeoSeek. Using the expertise and technology at our GeneSeek Operations facility in Lincoln, NE, we offer the next generation of genomic testing solutions to the food safety industry. This service is for anyone looking for more precise answers, without possessing the capability or resources to invest in the development of genomic testing solutions. Customers often include commercial or contract testing laboratories that find subcontracting to NeoSeek more economical than retaining the same capabilities.

STEC Confirmation

NeoSeek's breakthrough STEC confirmation technology provides next-day, DNA-specific test results for pathogenic STEC E. coli strains. Results are provided from enriched samples through our GeneSeek laboratory from an enrichment culture for seven STEC E. coli strains — O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, O145, and O157.

NeoSeek uses mass spectrometry-based multiplexing to develop a "DNA bar code" for STECs, and then compares those results with the known genetic makeup of the reference E. coli strains to identify and differentiate STECs from generic E. coli. NeoSeek provides confirmation directly from an enrichment broth, avoiding colony isolation by phenotype.

Salmonella Serotyping

NeoSeek Salmonella serotyping service provides molecular serotype determination from a colony isolate in 72 hours. The assay utilizes targeted amplicon PCR coupled with next generation sequencing to develop a genetic profile for the colony isolate and then compares those sequence results with the known genetic makeup of the reference database to determine the specific Salmonella serotype present.
