Neogen’s one-hour Listeria Right Now™ receives AOAC approval

Neogen’s ANSAR Listeria Right Now™ is designed to analyze environmental samples within 60 min, without the requirement of enrichment. The system had officially achieved AOAC approval, license number #081802. The system is also the winner of the 2018 CFIA innovation trophy. The ANSAR system detects very low numbers of Listeria spp., including L. monocytogenes, from environmental samples without enrichment. The system employs an isothermal, amplified nucleic acid-based reaction to target rRNA. Amplification occurs through a polymerization mechanism by a specific endonuclease. Detection occurs in real-time using a fluorescent molecular beacon. The system works so quickly because the technology that targets rRNA, which is present in much greater numbers than the traditional DNA target. An isothermal reaction also causes the replication and amplification to occur at a constant rate instead of the normal thermal-cycle technology from traditional PCR systems. The validation by AOAC adds another layer of assurance to the product. @
