The evaluation and control of the microclimate in indoor environments grant the optimization of the efficiency of a worker.
As regards the physical component, both a moderate microclimate (temperature, humidity and air exchange) and the level of noise may have repercussions. As regards the chemical aspect, checks are performed on CO2 level, potential pollutants dependent on the workplace (city center, industrial areas), the age of the building and its facilities that may potentially contain asbestos and/or vitreous artificial fibers. For microbiological monitoring, indispensable parameters such as microbial and fungal loads in the air together with the control of Legionella have to be considered. Mérieux NutriSciences meets customer needs by monitoring and controlling the chemical, physical and microbiological elements potentially present in a workplace.

Water is a fundamental element for the life of organisms and for all human activities. Current legislation specifies the chemical, physical and biological characteristics to abide by according to the final purpose of water: Mérieux NutriSciences performs water analysis to ensure the quality of surface, underground and waste water in full compliance with global standards.
The analyses performed on soils play a role of utmost importance in environmental investigations targeted to the characterization of sites: Mérieux NutriSciences samples and analyses both contaminated sites to verify their contamination, and non-contaminated areas, to check the possibility to re-use the soil obtained from excavations.
All manufacturing processes produce liquid and solid waste that must be correctly managed. Mérieux NutriSciences provides a full range of testing to support environmentally responsible waste management programs: waste characterization and classification, chemical and product analyses, ADR (Accord Dangereuses Routes) consultancy.
Stack emissions are one of the aspects of prevailing environmental impact produced by companies. Thanks to a specialized team, Mérieux NutriSciences performs the monitoring of micropollutants with equipped vehicles, sampling of organic micro-pollutants (dioxins, furans and PCBs), verification of Automatic Measuring Systems and management of QAL2 and AST protocols in compliance with EN 14181 standard.
Industrial activities might imply environmental pollution both in the workplace (indoor) and outside (outdoor) due to chemical, physical or biological agents. Thanks to a team specialized in industrial hygiene, Mérieux NutriSciences analyses several fundamental environmental parameters for the monitoring of the quality of the environment in the industrial field to protect the health and the well-being of both workers and the population.
Even the most structured companies need to make the necessary checks that allow them to evaluate their performance, to understand if they are operating according to the expected requirements and if the outcome is positive in technological, economic and environmental terms. Mérieux NutriSciences performs testing services dedicated to different production sectors, and checks both raw materials and waste products such as electrical and electronic equipment, building materials, metals and alloys, fuel oils and polymers.
