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”).
