LEXINGTON, Ky., November 15, 2022 — Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that it has launched its trusted Synergize® disinfectant in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

Synergize has been at the forefront of biosecurity and research practices in North America for more than 20 years, trusted amongst the swine, poultry, cattle, equine, and companion animal industries to stop the spread of disease before it starts.

“Our Synergize disinfectant has long been trusted in North America to protect people and animals,” said John Adent, Neogen’s President and CEO. “We are pleased to be able to bring this valuable solution to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, helping to enhance biosecurity portfolios around the world and keeping the food chain safe and secure from harmful diseases.”

Synergize disinfectant is a combination quaternary ammonium and glutaraldehyde multi-purpose disinfectant that is non-corrosive to hard surfaces, killing both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, fungi, spores, and viruses. It can be applied on both hard and porous surfaces with a cloth, sponge, mop, mechanical spray device, or in boot baths or soaking tubs*. The disinfectant is approved by governments around the world, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Health Canada, and now the UK Department for Environmental, Food and Rural Affairs for General Orders, Diseases of Poultry and Foot and Mouth Disease. Neogen has also widened the scope of its efficacy testing to include EN testing, encompassing European Standards.   

Synergize can be used in combination with Neogen’s comprehensive suite of biosecurity products, including apparel, cleaners, and disinfectants, including:

  • Neogen Viroxide Super™: A peroxygen disinfectant that offers rapid broad-spectrum disinfection for the disinfection of animal housing, equipment, and other non-porous surfaces.
  • Farm-Foam™ EVO: A foaming, alkaline cleaner used to remove organic soils in livestock and poultry facilities, including hatcheries, and other animal facilities.
  • AccuPoint® NG: A handheld sanitation monitoring device that measures the level of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) on a surface and provides fast, precise, and easy-to-monitor testing data.

Synergize will be launched at the EuroTier exhibition this week in Hannover, Germany, where Neogen will exhibit its full range of biosecurity solutions in Hall 23 D47.
