LANSING, Mich., April 1, 2019 — Neogen has introduced a portable version of its innovative Raptor® Integrated Analysis Platform that provides the option of performing mycotoxin testing in the laboratory — or wherever a tester may choose.

Neogen’s new Raptor Solo is a battery-operated portable version of the company’s popular Raptor Integrated Analysis Platform. As with the original benchtop version, the new Raptor is a lateral flow test strip reader with built-in incubation that provides an easy way to objectively analyze and store results of Neogen’s Reveal® Q+ MAX lateral flow tests.

“The addition of Raptor Solo provides the option of performing testing for mycotoxins wherever works best for you, whether that’s in a traditional lab setting, or anywhere else,” said Neogen’s Mary Gadola. “We’ve developed the new Raptor Solo as a single-port unit utilizing the same technology as the larger three-port Raptor system.”

The Raptor systems control the timing, temperature and reading of the test strips, allowing testers to simply add sample and walk away. They also protect the integrity and consistency of testing data by processing and analyzing results without additional operator input.

Raptor’s features and benefits include:

  • Barcoded test strips to identify the test type, lot and expiry
  • The ability to just add sample and walk away
  • Its system controls test parameters for data integrity
  • Connectivity options for easy testing data transfer, including Wi-Fi or USB
  • The use of Neogen Data Manager Software system for easy data analysis
