Another is the development of integrated analytical solutions that make it easier for food industry professionals to exploit the power of routine testing in their food safety management strategies. From the instrument set up to the regular maintenance and update of instruments, FOSS and Mérieux NutriSciences aim to provide an end-to-end service to their customers.
