Infrastructure and quality systems

Fraunhofer IGB has modern laboratories up to BSL2 (biological safety level 2) equipped with the latest technologies. An overview of infrastructure and technical equipment of the departments can be found in section competences.

A new pilot plant building is scheduled for completion and commissioning in summer of 2016. Our central storage facilities for chemicals and hazardous substances are shared with the other institutes on the Stuttgart Fraunhofer campus.

Quality systems

At Fraunhofer IGB, we ensure by established and standardized processes and procedures that the quality of our services and products meet the respective requirements. A quality management system guarantees that our accredited tests comply with DIN EN ISO / IEC 17025.

A quality assurance system makes sure that legal guidelines of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) for the respective products or test categories are met. Several tests are running at our category 9 GLP unit (“Cellbased test systems for the determination of biological parameters”).
