Simplified and Rapid Testing Solutions for Complex Matrices

Dietary Supplement Solutions

Microbial testing in the dietary supplement industry poses unique challenges. Dietary supplement manufacturing is complex from many perspectives: natural-sourced ingredients, diverse raw materials, multi-faceted supply chains, intricacy of the final product, changing regulations and complicated distribution networks. These complexities along with increased consumer concerns about food safety demand heightened focus on quality and safety – from raw materials to finished goods.

Microbiology For Innovators

Dietary supplements require microbial detection tools designed for challenging matrices. To meet the demand for safe products in this market, new and innovative microbiological testing technologies are required. However, most rapid detection methods available today are inefficient or aren’t robust enough to provide accurate results in these complex matrices.

bioMérieux’s innovative solutions were developed to combat the challenges of traditional microbial testing methods, providing a simplified, efficient way to perform USP compliant testing. GENE-UP® NUTRAPLEX™ PRO provides fully validated qualitative analysis for USP, demonstrating equivalency in performance to both USP and FDA BAM methodologies, with results in less than 24 hours and minimal hands-on time. TEMPO® is trusted around the globe for automated quality indicator testing. Gain quantitative analysis for USP with objective, easily-to-interpret results and consistency between different matrices, staff, and batches of product.

We are dedicated to simplifying microbiology for a complex industry that is unique and ever-evolving - where standards aren't always easy to navigate - where community is your resource - where brand reputation is everything - where the needs are specific to the product, the consumer, the manufacturer, the co-manufacturer, the brand - where 'checking the box' isn't always good enough, but doing more could result in a bottleneck - where challenging the status quo today means improving quality, efficiencies, R&D, revenue, success and defining the new standards of tomorrow. 

We are changing the game for the dietary supplements industry.
