We are committed to bringing the best ideas and most responsible innovation to every client and project. And we know that achieving this begins with our talented staff right here at bioMérieux; here’s a bit more about our different teams:

Quality team

The Quality team provides ongoing assurance for customers that our products are the highest levels of quality and performance.

They are involved in the development, manufacturing and lifecycle management of bioMérieux’s solutions, ensuring all aspects of our work are in full compliance with current regulations and standards.

The Quality team also provides customer support on a daily basis and plays an important role in our client relationships by receiving customers in-person for visits and audits.

Scientific affairs

Our scientists interact with customers in several unique ways. They help them to identify testing requirements by leveraging their expert knowledge of standard methods (such as ISO, CEN, GMP, FDA etc.) and regulations.

They also assist with official implementation and validation of rapid and alternative methods (including ISO 16140, AOAC and Pharmacopeias) and provide technical support.

As experts in their field our scientists also speak regularly at conferences and participate in many international organisations.

They also lead partnerships, collaborate with other experts and provide up-to-date scientific knowledge of new technologies, emerging trends in food safety and quality, imminent regulatory changes and standard methods. 

Field Application specialists

Field Application Specialists are our primary customer-facing staff and many clients see them as key partners in their work.

They gain an intimate understanding of each customer’s needs, issues and goals,

supporting them with scientific knowledge and experience gained in industry.

Their main roles are to find solutions for customers, using our products where appropriate, and offer daily support and troubleshooting when needed.

They also improve customer expertise by delivering high level training and assistance with specific qualification and validation strategies.
