LEXINGTON, Ky., June 14, 2018 — Neogen today announced the development of an innovative TMB substrate that requires no special labeling and delivers excellent performance.

Neogen’s new K-Blue® Advanced is a one-bottle, ready-to-use solution offering high activity, low background, long-term stability and non-hazardous labeling. K-Blue Advanced is ideal for assays requiring high activity, and is similar in kinetic performance to Neogen’s popular Enhanced K-Blue substrate.

“The development of K-Blue Advanced is in response to Neogen’s on-going commitment to providing high quality reagents to meet the changing and expanding requirements of our customers,” said Neogen’s Emilie Stanley. “K-Blue Advanced is a novel TMB substrate formulation providing the superior performance that is expected from a Neogen TMB substrate, while also minimizing product labeling hassles.”

Neogen performed an in-house evaluation that compared the performance of the new K-Blue Advanced against proven Enhanced K-Blue in three different competitive ELISAs. The evaluation demonstrated K-Blue Advanced offers similar performance characteristics to Enhanced K-Blue. K-Blue Advanced offers a 2-year shelf life when stored between 2–8°C.

For the strictest regulatory environments, Neogen also offer K-Blue Aqueous, a revolutionary 100% solvent-free TMB substrate, which has been in production for over 15 years.
