Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP)

Environmental Monitoring is the best way to assess your facility and control the potential for contamination in your manufacturing processes.

Environmental Monitoring Programs reinforce your Food Safety Plan

As your quality partner, Mérieux NutriSciences can help you choose the solutions best adapted to your needs. Our experienced experts and accredited labs work alongside your teams to ensure that your products will always meet and exceed your consumers’ expectations.

Monitoring manufacturing environments is a vital part of a comprehensive quality assurance program. Environmental monitoring programs are performed in the food, therapeutic goods, cosmetic and toiletry and household products industries.

Many incidents of product contamination and recall can be traced to the manufacturer’s failure to have a sound environmental monitoring program. A well-considered and delivered environmental monitoring program is the best front-line defense against product quality failure. It can be far less costly than even a single product recall.

Legionella Services

Merieux NutriSciences offers a range of services, designed to assist you with the monitoring and management of Legionella.

Legionella bacteria are found naturally in low numbers in water bodies such as rivers, lakes and reservoirs in temperatures between 20°C and 60°C.  Since they are naturally in the water they end up entering man-made water distribution systems where they can then reproduce and thrive on the nutrients available and the favourable conditions within these systems.

Having an effective environmental monitoring program with a comprehensive sampling plan is crucial to ensure food safety. Contact us to discuss your need and develop a customized EMP.
