Charm Sciences Collaborates with MERIEUX NutriSciences EnviroMap


Charm Sciences and Mérieux NutriSciences, leaders in global food safety, quality, and rapid diagnostics, are proud to announce a collaboration to deliver a revolutionary combination of digital platform EnviroMap®, a cloud-based mapping software solution for environmental microbial, paired with ATP monitoring in the food industry.

Charm Sciences’ novaLUM II-X and PocketSwab Plus ATP monitoring program combined with EnviroMap helps measure sanitation effectiveness by creating a visual map of results, bridging the gap between ATP pre-op monitoring and environmental bacterial sampling programs. Sanitation, quality assurance, and plant managers will have better visibility to all data collected to help direct resources to improve sanitation verification and validation, product quality, and ultimately protect the product brand.

EnviroMap executive dashboard empowers corporate entities to manage and compare ATP and microbial results from multiple factories, including real-time notifications for out-of-spec data with follow up tasks to track pending corrective actions when positives occur. Charm Sciences’ novaLUM II-X system and third-party lab microbial results allow a seamless integration into EnviroMap.

“Environmental monitoring automation combined with one of the industry-leading sanitation verification technology enables customers to gain a real-time visual representation of their facility’s sanitation effectiveness,” said Agnès Houpiart-Dupré, Vice-President Digital Solutions of Mérieux NutriSciences. “Customers are able to view their Environmental Monitoring Program data end-to-end, whether using in-house testing technology or sending to an external lab. No matter the source, the data syncs effortlessly, offering a complete and easy-to-understand picture of the plant’s production environment. This total solution has the ability to increase efficiencies, prevent human error, and enable early detection of food safety risks.”

“Charm Sciences’ superior ATP sensitivity provides a higher standard of hygiene monitoring that can be linked to microbial surveillance using EnviroMap software,” said Meikel Brewster, Executive Vice President of Charm Sciences. “This offers the most comprehensive sanitation monitoring program for food safety and brand protection for our customers. Charm is pleased to have a partner who values scientific excellence and shares our commitment to support customers in managing their risk with food safety reporting solutions.”
