Neogen licenses food safety data analytics platform from Corvium

Neogen Corp. has signed a development and licensing agreement with Corvium Inc. that will allow Neogen’s customers exclusive access to an enhanced version of Corvium’s award-winning Control-Pro food risk intelligence platform.

To be marketed under the Neogen Analytics brand, the innovative platform will enable Neogen customers to automate food safety workflows, and continuously monitor and analyze food risk data generated by the company’s food safety diagnostic products.

“Providing rapid, accurate test results with Neogen’s food safety diagnostics is only the first step in a company’s overall food safety program,” said John Adent, Neogen’s chief executive officer. “Effective food safety programs also feature the ability to rapidly respond to adverse test results, as well as identify troublesome trends in their facilities — our new Neogen Analytics platform will allow our customers to easily do both.”

By automating and connecting multiple data points through diagnostic testing in a production facility, the food safety data analytics platform enables food producers and processors to harness their data to create a holistic picture around areas of risk that can guide operational decisions.

“The advancement of food safety technology is accelerating as companies are demanding greater value from their microbiological and environmental data for use in improved preventative controls and predictive analytics,” said Jeff Swartz, Corvium’s chief executive officer. “Neogen is one of the most respected and advanced organizations in the world of food safety, with a diverse set of global customers and diagnostic solutions. We are excited at the opportunity to combine our platform and analytics capabilities to help their customers reduce food risk and improve quality using their unique diagnostic solutions and data assets.”
