Infrastructure and quality systems

Technical infrastructure and laboratory equipment

Cutting-edge technologies and comprehensive, modern equipment are indispensable for our scientific work – and an added benefit for you as a customer.

Our laboratories are designed for work up to BSL2 (biological safety level 2).

A new building commissioned in 2017 has, among other things, roll-to-roll coating plants and technical centers for aseptic work (foodstuffs), for the treatment of process waste water as well as for wastewater and sludge treatment on a pilot scale.

At Fraunhofer CBP, our Leuna branch of the institute, processes are scaled up to industrial dimensions.

Quality systems

For many years, standardized and internally as well as externally validated processes and procedures at Fraunhofer IGB have been safeguarding a reliable and consistent quality of our services and products. An efficient quality management system ensures that selected test procedures are accredited according to the international DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard.

Our quality assurance system ensures that the statutory guidelines of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) are complied with. Several tests are running at our category 9 GLP unit (“Cellbased test systems for the determination of biological parameters”).
