Water is a vital natural resource whose quality is essential to all living organisms. Mérieux NutriSciences provides chemical, physical and microbiological analyses to ensure the quality of surface water, ground water and waste water according to global standards.
All water intended for human consumption must be carefully monitored and controlled. Mérieux NutriSciences provides potability tests for drinking water and mineral water along with a full range of water quality testing for the food and beverage industry. Our specialized labs perform microbiological tests to detect potentially harmful bacteria and chemical analyses for radioactivity along with contaminants and residues including heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins. We also provide specific testing for Legionella pneumophila to manage the risk of Legionnaire’s disease.
Water quality tests are performed to guarantee the safety of water in public bathing areas and spas, for agricultural use such as irrigation of crops, industrial process waters and domestic and industrial effluents.
