Product Quality and Safety

We know that the quality of our diagnostic tests helps determine the treatment prescribed by a healthcare professional or the microbiological safety and time to market of a food product. bioMérieux makes every effort to guarantee the quality and safety of our products. 

The quality of our diagnostic tests has a direct impact on the quality of the test results our customers provide to those who depend on them. This is why we believe that Quality is everybody’s responsibility at bioMérieux.

New companies, new subsidiaries, new products: the scope of our growth and the complexity of our business activity in a highly-regulated environment mean that, as a company, we have to move very quickly while complying with the highest standards of control everywhere in the world.

Our Quality Policy

Right from the start, bioMérieux’s Quality Policy is integrated into every aspect of our work. It guides our internal processes and drives positive business outcomes and efficiency.
We have developed a Global Quality Management System to oversee our processes and manage risk. This approach not only meets regulatory requirements, but it also decreases production cycle times, reduces product nonconformities and optimizes our supply chain. As a result, our products can be brought to market faster in order to satisfy the needs of our customers.

In line with regulatory requirements, our Quality Policy also depends on the participation of our sites and our subsidiaries throughout the world so that it is understood, applied and recognized by all employees.

Quality is not the job of the Quality Organization alone. It is a responsibility shared by all employees, affecting everybody from R&D to Sales, Manufacturing and Marketing, as well as the Support functions.
Performance indicators engage all employees in the achievement of quality objectives. Continuous improvement initiatives are in place, and our teams worldwide share best practices.
