NeoSeek: 16S Metagenomics for Food Safety and Quality

December 28, 2017

NEOGEN’s new NeoSeek™ genomic services utilize a novel application of 16S metagenomics to determine all bacteria in a sample, without introducing biases from culture media or the need to generate a bacterial isolate for each possible microbe in a sample. Comparing multiple sample types, such as raw materials, environmental swabs, and in-process materials provides a unique understanding of all the bacteria that may be present in a food facility — and their sources. Companies can then use the facility’s “biomap” to make any necessary adjustments to their food safety protocols.
