Merck Life Science

Merck is a vibrant science and technology company that operates across Healthcare, Life Science and Performance Materials. In sensitive industries like food and beverage production, detecting pathogens or spoilage microorganisms can become a matter of urgency – to ensure consumer safety, avoid damage to food brands and minimize the associated costs of a food recall. Assurance of safe food is something we often take for granted but luckily our customers don’t.

Chicken, beef, fish, eggs, fruits and vegetables – all things we consume daily, and all are potential carriers of harmful, or even deadly, pathogens. Other contaminants such as pesticides, toxins, heavy metals, and cleaning and packaging residues might also propose a threat to our health.
Our customers in the food manufacturing industry rely on us to help them with their food safety testing and maintaining proper hygiene throughout the manufacturing process. Our comprehensive portfolio combined with our regulatory expertise, enables our customers to quickly test for a wide variety of harmful pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli, ensuring the safety of the food we consume. In addition, our products and services help customers in the food and beverage market to detect and quantify chemical residues, like pesticides and mycotoxins. We also provide products that help test nutritional value and identify quality inconsistencies.

Our comprehensive offer of high quality products and testing solutions are combined with high quality technical support and innovation driven R&D within our company
