Contract Research and Consulting

Mérieux NutriSciences offers a comprehensive portfolio of contract research services tailored to the needs of manufacturers, retailers and marketers.

The range of different products developed and marketed for consumer use today is as vast as it is varied. From packaging to air fresheners, multipurpose cleaners to laundry detergents – whatever your product, our experts can support you in developing specific analytical plans, tests and method validation, providing label reviews and regulatory advice.

•    Analytical method development and validation
Personalized protocols for testing of detergents and other household products and consumer goods. Our tests can help you demonstrate product quality, efficacy and safety.

•    Product performance tests
Conclusive evidence of how well a product performs, potentially including videos and photos of the test, and supporting documentation for regulatory dossiers

•    Comparative analysis
Statistical and market research in order to support laboratory test data. These methods (parametric and non-parametric) allow you to highlight differences between comparison products.

•    Labeling and regulatory support
Assessment of conformity to current regulations, for all consumer products and for those that fall into the category of “dangerous preparations.”

Our experts in Sensory and Consumer Research can partner with your marketing, R&D and quality teams to help improve your product profile and better meet consumer expectations.
