Bivalve Molluscs

Bivalve molluscs are promoted in many countries for their beneficial health effects and organizations around the world are creating Protected Designation of Origins for species such as mussels, oysters and scallops. But the consumption of raw or undercooked filter-feeding bivalve molluscs can cause illnesses due to the presence of microorganisms (including both viruses and bacteria).

Bivalve Molluscs

In many cases these microorganisms are introduced from fecal contamination of bivalves and their identification requires precise testing systems. We help producers bring peace-of-mind to their consumers by ensuring good manufacturing practices and clean production environments, while constantly monitoring the right quality indicators and testing for pathogens.
