Hybrigenics Gets Quality Certification in US, Europe, and Japan

NEW YORK, May 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Hybrigenics, a Paris-based, a protein pathways-analysis company, has received global quality certification for its proteomics services, a public relations firm representing the firm said today.

 

According to Andrew Lloyd, the firm's spokesperson, Hybrigenics' services have obtained ISO 9001-2000 certification from the International Standards Organization in Europe, as well as certification from QMI, the standards registrar in the US, and from the Japan Quality Assurance Association, a non-profit standards registrar in that country.

 

Bart Kwist, the company's CEO, said the certifications would provide customers with "added confidence in the quality of the protein data" that the proteomics service provides. He said that few biotech companies have achieved such certification and that it would make Hybrigenics more competitive.
