Accelerated aging is an artificial procedure for establishing the lifespan or shelf life of a product, using aggravated conditions of heat, humidity, sunlight, etc. to speed up the normal aging process. 

The health and well-being of consumers are at the heart of Mérieux NutriSciences’ concerns, so the study and identification of allergens in consumer goods is of great importance for us. 

Resistance to deterioration of mechanical and optical properties, caused by exposure to weathering and/or light, is a significant factor in relation to many consumer goods.

Designed in keeping with national and international requirements and standards, our laboratory possesses a bank of cultures, reference microorganisms and wild microorganisms, as well as state-of-the-art technology to carry out microbiological analyses.
