The interdisciplinary developments carried out in applied research by Meurice R&D are supported by wide-ranging expertise and a comprehensive variety of equipment specific to chemical and biochemical processes, from the laboratory up to implementation on pilot scale.
The diverse topics addressed within the context of numerous industrial research and development projects include:
Unitary drying operations (freeze-drying, fluidised bed and atomisation).
Unitary filtration operations (bio-, micro-, dia-, ultrafiltration, filtration on plates or candles, study of adjuvants, etc.).
Purification of proteins from the milligram to the gram on compacted resins or in fluidised bed.
The encapsulation of living cells or active principles by inclusion in gels or by coating.
The development of recipes and processes on a pilot microbrewery.
The complementary nature of these capabilities most notably permits the integration of downstream processing activities, from fermentation to the final formulation of metabolites or micro-organisms.
