ServiceXS Gets ISO/IEC Accreditation for Genomics Services

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – ServiceXS, a genomics services provider based in Leiden, The Netherlands, today said that it has received ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation.

The firm said that the accreditation, which applies to testing and calibration laboratories, covers its genome sequencing, genotyping, and gene expression profiling services, as well as its DNA methylation assays.

The ISO/IEC 17025 is a standard for lab testing and covers specific requirements for competence in carrying out assays, the ability to consistently produce valid and traceable results, and continuous improvement of quality management.
