Food Environmental Monitoring Program

      Enhance your Food Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP) to assess and control contamination in your manufacturing processes effectively. EMP is crucial for maintaining quality and preventing contamination incidents and recalls. It serves as the frontline defense against product quality failure and is a cost-effective alternative to a single product recall.

      Types of Monitoring We Offer

      Surface Monitoring

      Surface monitoring determines the microbial population on surfaces within the manufacturing area, including:

      • Equipment
      • Product contact surfaces
      • Floors
      • Walls
      • Drains
      • Employee’s hands

      Techniques typically used are swabs, sponging, and agar contact.

      Aerial Monitoring

      Aerial monitoring is usually confined to cleanrooms and other specialized workspaces. It can also be implemented to track specific risks such as molds. Settle plates and other passive techniques help monitor the microbial population that might settle on a surface or product at a given time during manufacturing processes.

      Water Monitoring

      Mérieux NutriSciences offers a full complement of tests for potable and processed water. Preventive measures are designed to limit contamination, avoid the development of bacteria in critical environments and monitor levels of Legionella or other specific contaminants such as Pseudomonas.
