Safety is a big issue in today’s industries

It’s a time issue. A cost issue. And most important, it’s a risk issue. What’s required to cover all these issues is a vision. A vision for a safer future. That’s why we offer you a complete solution to help you stay on the safe side: with high-quality products, with excellent service, and with professional expertise, Merck Millipore provides more safety than meets the eye.

Let’s take a closer look: most contaminants are invisible to the naked eye. Although single micro-organisms (as well as those carried on particles) are fairly small, they pose a severe threat to the safety of products and brands: every year, several hundred products have to be recalled, resulting in financial and image losses.

At Merck Millipore, we believe that the solution to this problem is not only simple but also cost-efficient: with our complete portfolio for environmental monitoring, covering particle counting, active and passive air monitoring as well as surface and personnel monitoring solutions. The relatively low costs of monitoring result in improved quality and increased safety – and in the reduction of overall expenses.

To keep expenses low in the long term, Merck Millipore offers a comprehensive range of high quality monitoring and testing solutions that help you keep your facilities safe, from less critical to highly critical clean rooms and isolators. With our monitoring solutions you can conveniently check surfaces, equipment, and air quality for contaminants – getting answers rapidly and reliably. Since our products have been developed in close cooperation with users and authorities, they are tailored to the customers’ needs and follow international guidelines for critical and controlled environments, such as EU cGMP, USP, or FDA Aseptic Guidance. What’s more: as a one-stop supplier, we also offer a wide range of services, including IQ/OQ maintenance, calibration, product validation, and application.
