GENE-UP® - Automated Pathogen Detection

Food & Beverage

Automated Pathogen Detection The GENE-UP® PCR solution for real-time pathogen detection helps speed up food analysis and product release.  Molecular pathogen detection has never been simpler, faster, or more flexible—GENE-UP® provides an intuitive, real-time PCR solution. Our real-time PCR solution simplifies workflows, decreases cross-contamination risks, and gives you rapid results that speed up critical manufacturing decisions. 

BIOBALL® Standardized Strains for food applications

Food & Beverage

BIOBALL® is a range of quality control microorganisms specifically designed for food applications.   The reference strains are presented in small, water-soluble balls containing an accurate and precise number of microorganisms.   As they are ready-to-use with no need for culture, BIOBALL® limits handling and risk of cross-contamination of food samples.   The range also includes BIOBALL® LUMINATE 2.0 which are tagged with a Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) marker integrated into the chromosome. Fluorescence makes them easy to distinguish from possible natural contaminants.   BIOBALL® range is suitable for positive controls, validation and verification of methods, performance testing of culture media, and includes the most common strains used in food safety, including Salmonella Typhimurium, Cronobacter sakazakii, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli.  

The xPRO™ Program: Custom Molecular Assays

Food & Beverage

The xPRO™ Program is an innovative unit within bioMérieux that develops customized molecular assays with and for food industrials.  Fuelled by our Augmented Diagnostics approach, we partner directly with industry leaders to rapidly develop and commercialize high-value molecular assays.  Over the years, we have launched an unprecedented number of innovative molecular assays to deliver unmatched value and data-rich insights to the food safety and quality community.   From detecting spoilage contaminants in beverages to pathogens on environmental surfaces, our program successfully developed many game-changer solutions based on our expertise in microbiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics - and our close relationship with food leaders.  

MASTERCLAVE® - Broth and Culture Media Preparator

Food & BeverageLaboratory Equipment

MASTERCLAVE® is an automated culture media preparation system that places automation at the heart of your laboratory and improves the entire workflow, from media to sample preparation. MASTERCLAVE® is the first step in effective pathogen detection and numeration, particularly for preparing culture media for bacterial growth and when a high volume of broth is required for food precise microbiological analysis. Simplify your workflow and save time with our MASTERCLAVE®

VIDAS KUBE® - Easy Automated Food Pathogen Detection

Food & Beverage

Easy, Automated Food Pathogen Detection. Your food testing needs are evolving. You must provide same-day, accurate results in a timely manner to release products faster and secure your production environment.

D-COUNT® - Ultra-Rapid Microbiology Detection

Food & Beverage

The D-COUNT® system is an advanced analysis solution for rapidly detecting microorganisms. Rapid detection tests in microbiology enable greater efficiencies and enhanced capabilities in the lab.  Rapid microbiology testing with the D-COUNT® system improves quality assurance and production, overcoming the limits of classical microbiology due to microorganisms' growth rate on culture media. The advanced solution for rapid testing helps to reduce production cycle times and inventories and implement just-in-time manufacturing processes. It also minimizes the risks and costs associated with potential in-process contamination while continuing to guarantee and enhance the quality of products delivered to customers. 

ENVIROMAP® - Elevate Your Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP)

Food & Beverage

Elevate your environmental monitoring program. ENVIROMAP® is a secure, cloud-based system that allows you to automate your environmental monitoring program and assists with the entire sampling lifecycle. Simplify your processes and ensure peace of mind with effortless tracking and traceability. ENVIROMAP® benefits from the combined work of the Mérieux companies: bioMérieux and Mérieux Nutrisciences. 

TEMPO® - Automated Quality Indicator Solution

Food & Beverage

TEMPO®  is an automated platform for the analysis of food quality indicators. Quality indicators or hygienic parameters contribute to defining food quality, as well as food safety. They represent the biggest volume of analysis in typical food safety testing processes and help to control the process, environment and final product. TEMPO enables food quality analysts to master the enumeration of key parameters so that compliance can be confirmed on the final product and processes are optimized while conforming to HACCP guidance.


Food & Beverage

GENE-UP® PRO ACB assay detects Alicyclobacillus spp. and predicts the presence of guaiacol – the metabolite that causes spoilage in beverages. GENE-UP® PRO ACB can also be used without enrichment to provide reliable threshold enumeration of Alicyclobacillus spp.
