Mérieux NutriSciences performs analyses for potable water and mineral waters. 

Our specialized laboratories perform microbiological analyses to identify potentially harmful bacteria and chemical analyses to determine radioactivity, residues and contaminants, including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. Specific analysis to determine the Legionella pneumophila to manage the risk of Legionnaire’s disease is also provided. The checks on water quality are performed to ensure water safety in public bathing areas and spas, as well as water quality for agricultural uses (such as irrigation of crops) and water used in industrial processes or urban and industrial effluents. Preventive measures are established to limit contamination, avoid bacterial development in critical environments and monitor levels of Legionella or other specific contaminants such as Pseudomonas.
