About bioMérieux Industry Applications
The analysis of an industrial sample (food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products) or an environmental sample (water, air, surface), to determine its microbiological quality.

Industrial Microbiological Control
The food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries are required to control the microbiological quality and composition of their products. The industrial microbiology laboratory tests the sterility of a product (absence of microorganisms) or the absence of pathogenic bacteria (which cause infections), as well as ensuring that commensal bacteria (normally present in man and harmless in small quantities) are only present in quantities under a certain limit. Industrial microbiological controls are therefore performed throughout the production chain from raw materials to finished products, as well as in the manufacturing environment.

bioMérieux provides a broad range of solutions for the
food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries in the fields of food safety, quality control, traceability, as well as sterility controls, water controls and environmental controls.
