Lansing’s Neogen Corp., which develops products for food and animal safety, has launched an improved version of its AccuPoint Advanced sanitation monitoring system. It is designed to be simpler to use and provide results that are easier to analyze.
AccuPoint Advanced Next Generation system features a more modernized and user-friendly handheld device that has a glove-compatible touch-screen interface, a more precise measurement through the use of a new photodiode multiplier lens, and the ability to connect to Wi-Fi networks for secure data transfer.
“Our new AccuPoint system helps ensure that testing can be performed, recorded, and traced in the fastest and most efficient way possible,” says John Adent, president and CEO of Neogen. “Over our many years of working with the food industry, we recognize that it is imperative that our diagnostics provide the fastest, most precise, and easy-to-monitor testing data on the market. We are confident that this system will provide exactly that while simultaneously providing the most user-friendly experience.”
The system also is compatible with the redesigned Data Manager and Smart Plans reporting software from Neogen, which provides streamlined testing plans and saves permanent testing records. Included with the system are the Neogen Analytics Insights and data management software programs.
AccuPoint Advanced NG uses a flat tip sampler for maximized recovery of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
ATP sanitation monitoring systems are recognized as the “gold standard” for the monitoring of sanitation effectiveness within food and beverage production facilities. Using an ATP system to monitor the cleanliness of the facility can be customized for the specific needs of the production facility, including equipment, product, processes, and people.
Neogen’s food safety division markets dehydrated culture media and diagnostic test kits to detect foodborne bacteria, natural toxins, food allergens, drug residues, plant diseases, and sanitation concerns. Its Neogen animal safety division develops animal genomics along with the manufacturing and distribution of a variety of animal health care products, including diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, veterinary instruments, wound care, and disinfectants.
