Shellfish Toxin Testing

Neogen Europe Ltd. is able to provide Contract Laboratory Services for Amnesic Shellfish Poisoning (ASP), Diarrhetic Shellfish Poisoning (DSP) and Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (PSP). Shellfish poisoning is caused by a group of toxins elaborated by planktonic algae (dinoflagellates, in most cases) upon which the shellfish feed. The toxins are accumulated and sometimes metabolized by the shellfish. In addition to shellfish toxin testing, Neogen Europe Ltd. has the resources to test for heavy metals and other toxins on request.
