Details of a centre



Destined to develop a long tradition of fermentation and microbiology, Meurice R&D has built up unique know-how within the framework of industrial and academic collaborations. Its expertise applies both to bacteria and to yeast and fungus.

Meurice R&D is a leading partner for traditional microbiological analyses across all fields, and also specialises in the rapid quantitative and qualitative determination of contaminants encountered in the brewing and food industries via the Real-Time PCR technique.

Its command of traditional and cutting-edge microbiological technologies permits the selection and/or improvement of strains via genetic modifications for diverse applications.

The identification of strains and their tracing using specific markers calling upon the full range of molecular biology techniques also forms part of this field of activity.

These applied skills are based on numerous more fundamental research projects relating in particular to the study of metabolic paths and their regulation mechanisms.
