NEOGEN® Allergen Testing
NEOGEN’s food allergen test kits accurately detect a wide range of food allergens, including allergens
of regulatory importance to governments worldwide. They offer solutions for testing ingredients, liquids,
clean-in-place (CIP) rinses, finished foods, and on environmental surfaces—fitting smoothly into any
allergen control plan.
Undeclared allergens are one of the most common causes for food product recalls, and preventing
cross-contamination of food allergens is one of the biggest challenges faced by the food industry.
Research continues to show the number of people with food allergies is growing—making it critical
for food manufacturers to implement rigorous allergen control plans.
