Our ANSR® platform provides molecular pathogen detection in food and environmental samples, detecting 1 CFU of target organism per sample. As well as offering incredible sensitivity, the ANSR platform also offers rapid time to results and the option to pool ten samples to test as one, providing detection of low level specified targets in food samples in as little as one hour following enrichment.

Our range of ANSR test kits for food testing includes ISO 16140-2 and AOAC validated ANSR for Listeria spp., ANSR for Listeria monocytogenes, and ANSR for Salmonella, as well as AOAC validated ANSR for E. coli O157:H7 and ANSR for Campylobacter.

ANSR Listeria Right Now™ is our revolutionary environmental test for Listeria spp. that requires no enrichment and provides results in as little as 60 minutes. Utilizing the molecular detection technology of the ANSR platform, the Listeria Right Now kit can also detect 1 CFU per swab, providing sensitive results without pathogen enrichment at an incredible speed.

One Broth One Plate

One Broth One Plate (OBOP) is an innovative workflow solution for detecting pathogens in food, feed, and environmental samples, using just one enrichment broth and one agar plate. Ideal for laboratories looking to reduce time to result while still maintaining classical microbiology, OBOP workflows have increased sensitivity versus their corresponding ISO methods, with results in just 48 hours.

Our OBOP workflows, available for detecting Listeria spp., Listeria monocytogenes, and Salmonella spp., have been independently validated and certified according to ISO 16140-2 as an alternative testing method to the associated ISO reference methods. Additionally, our OBOP-S workflow has AOAC RI PTM certification as an alternative to the FDA BAM and USDA MLG reference methods.


Our Reveal tests offer flexible pathogen testing with accurate qualitative results for various common pathogens using antibody-based lateral flow strips. The easy-to-use, easy-to-interpret lateral flow strips allow for microbial detection without microbiology training and offer scalability when it comes to sample throughput. Reveal is a great fit for those looking for a quick and easy test to screen for pathogen presence.

No matter the type of pathogen testing you’d like to implement, Neogen has a solution to fit your needs:
