The Lansing-based biotech company Neogen Corp. said Monday it had developed the quickest and easiest test to definitively detect for contamination with Listeria bacteria.
The Emerging Technology Accelerator, an initiative of the Global Food Protection Institute, announced it will make investments in two startup companies that have developed products that rapidly detect pathogens in food. Seattle Sensor Systems and NanoRete were selected from over 40 companies.
Michigan State University has licensed a suite of technologies to detect a broad range of pathogens and toxins to Michigan-based start-up nanoRETE. The company was launched by Michigan Accelerator Fund I (MAF-1), an investment partnership focused on Michigan-based early stage life science and technology companies.
