It’s Pre-Harvest Time!

April 11, 2022

Mycotoxin management strategies are important during the entire harvest process. Mycotoxin contamination leads to lower quality grain, crop yield reductions, and risk of illness to humans and animals. Making sure your organization is ready for the new harvest is vital to success with your testing program for this year’s harvest. We have been a partner with many customers over the past years and look forward to working with you for a smooth harvest for this year.

Neogen® is an industry leader in mycotoxin risk management solutions. Founded from scientific innovations at Michigan State University, we developed aflatoxin, our first rapid test for mycotoxins. This led us to our mission of food and animal safety and allowed us to become global providers for testing needs such as mycotoxins and allergens. As mycotoxin management is very important to us, here are some things we have to help with testing needs:

  • A set of solutions for all mycotoxins adapted to different needs and approaches
  • Dedicated team of technical sales and customer support professionals
  • Virtual and in-field training when needed
  • Support to validate new products and applications
  • Production capacities to meet peak harvest demand that are second to none

Mycotoxins entered the human food supply when crop cultivation began, and while there are hundreds of mycotoxins, the most commonly observed due to their concern to human health and livestock include:

  • Deoxynivalenol (DON)
  • Aflatoxin
  • Fumonisin
  • Zearalenone
  • Ochratoxin A

Effects from mycotoxin consumption can range from symptoms of severe illness to long-term negative health effects such as cancer or immune deficiencies.
