Mérieux NutriSciences is now offering an expert information research service for a deep search and review of scientific literature and regulatory information. Our access to hundreds of bibliographic databases allows our research services to go beyond a typical web search. The searches are performed by an information expert with more than 15 years of experience researching scientific literature and North American regulations.


Scientific literature holds a wealth of knowledge to support food safety programs. A literature search provides valuable information regarding the potential microbial, chemical and physical hazards associated with a specific food matrix, technology, process or environment.

Typically, a literature search will result in a report containing a brief narrative description of the search results and references. For more complex research queries, our service provides a written summary of the available literature, including references and, if applicable, links to full-text documents. All projects are based on a flat hourly rate for research time regardless of the result.
