nomad Quick-Start Microbiology Services

Our microbial monitoring experts at your service

we help you design, implement and optimize a plan specific to your situation

We are not afraid of our customers’ challenges. We join forces, providing tools, methods and information, solving your problems as if they were our own.

Either for lack of time, equipment or experience, the first step in most monitoring plans – defining it to provide desired answers — can be a showstopper. Meanwhile, vulnerabilities may remain, along with lurking doubts.

To simplify and accelerate the process, we help you design, implement and optimize a plan specific to your situation. The Microbiology Services are developed for environmental, hygiene and process applications, combining testing, data management, methodology and support, to get your monitoring plan started on the right foot.

Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification

Partnering for effective microbial risk management

Work directly with a microbial monitoring expert

We put our experience and expertise to work for you in 1-on-1 meetings throughout the implementation process, so you can rest assured that your microbial risk management system is effective.

360° microbial risk assessment

We help you fully assess the risks your activity faces and determine the process and environmental monitoring points where you most need testing to monitor for microbial growth.

A step-by-step process

Implementing effective microbial monitoring is a step-by-step process. With our nomad Smart Quick-Start Services, we walk you through it, from signing a 2-way confidentiality agreement to evaluating whether your microbial risk management system is providing the results you need. Before you start sampling, though, we help you complete a comprehensive microbial risk assessment, studying your plant and your process to identify the critical points for monitoring.

Once your risk assessment is complete, we help you set up a sampling plan, with established routines and weekly sampling schedules. And once your program has been in place, we meet with you to help you improve your plan, fine-tuning it to make it as effective as possible.

Throughout the process, our microbiology consultants work with you so you can have the peace of mind that you are taking the right steps.

Debrief & Plan Optimization

The first step of establishing a biocontamination assessment, control plan or a troubleshooting plan so that it provides the desired answers for your specific process, hygiene or environmental questions, can be difficult, either for lack of time or practice.

Yet data speaks to anyone and monitoring plans are subject to continuous improvements.
The Quick-start service packs are designed to reduce your effort to get the ⓵ Plan design and program, ⓶ detection and measures, ⓷ data-processing and decision-making wheel to turn appropriately the first time, so you can quickly take control of your operations.

These services are not an audit but an opportunity to share peer-to-peer experience. They are based on good practices, a methodology and a systematic review of biocontamination risks to provide information relevant to lift a doubt, challenge a hypothesis, or constitute an initial approach to a documented formal biocontamination control plan. 

Confidentially, we will meet by video to understand your concerns and objective, systematically review the risks associated with each of the 5 inputs (water, raw materials, personnel, air and rodent), with process steps, people and material flow, looking our for potential vulnerabilities. 

After this risk assessment step, BioMire will suggest a list of sampling points from the process and its environment to be monitored typically over a 3 months period. Once this sampling plan, sampling and test method, schedule have been discussed and agreed, the analysis period can start.

We supply the Test kits, the Apps and the assistance necessary for this period.

After the Analysis, we meet again to share experiences and comments, discuss baselines, alert levels and other learnings that are relevant for a continued plan.
