NeoSeek™ is a breakthrough pathogen detection and identification service that provides next day, DNA-specific STEC test results for seven pathogenic Shiga toxin-producing E. coli strains (STECs). A similar service for Salmonella identification is also available. Currently, Neogen® offers next-day results from enriched samples through our GeneSeek® laboratory facilities for seven E. coli strains — O26, O45, O103, O111, O121, O145, and O157. The NeoSeek technology uses PCR coupled with mass spectrometry-based multiplexing to develop a genetic profile for bacteria in a food sample, and then compares those results with the known genetic makeup of the reference E. coli strains to identify and differentiate the target strains. NeoSeek assays more than 86 specific genetic markers to provide faster results than conventional culture methods.
