Nutraceuticals, also called dietary supplements or food supplements, are gaining popularity globally due to consumers' rising awareness of their many health benefits. To meet growing consumer demand, the nutraceutical industry has to adapt quickly by evolving its operation capabilities and quality control management while following regulations. The soar in demand stresses the manufacturing lines and increases the risk of microbial contamination.

With innovative diagnostics solutions, bioMérieux helps nutraceutical manufacturers meet their microbial quality testing challenges and address the unique complexities of their industry (process/products) while improving overall operations efficiency and complying with regulations.

The GENE-UP® NUTRAPLEX™ PRO assay, part of this suite of testing solutions, was developed and launched as part of bioMérieux's unique xPRO™ program and in partnership with a key player in this market.

The xPRO™ Program by bioMérieux is a catalyst that advances cutting-edge molecular diagnostics for quality and safety departments in the food, beverage, and nutraceutical industries.

GENE-UP® NUTRAPLEX™ PRO is a multiplex assay that simultaneously detects Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp. and Staphylococcus aureus from a single universal enrichment in 24 hours.
