Lab901 Receives ISO 9001 Accreditation

Premium

By Justin Petrone

Lab901 this week said that the manufacturing process for its ScreenTape System meets the standards of the International Organization for Standardization.

Lab901's ScreenTape is an automated system for gel electrophoresis. Using the system, customers can analyze protein, DNA, and RNA samples by loading a ScreenTape consumable into the firm's TapeStation instrument. The TapeStation then delivers the ScreenTape Degradation Value, or SDV, a quality metric for total RNA samples.

Some microarray firms, such as Oxford Gene Technology, have adopted Lab901's ScreenTape for RNA quality control purposes (BAN 1/12/2010).

According to Edinburgh, UK-based Lab901, its manufacturing process has received ISO 9001:2008 accreditation. This standard addresses quality management systems and concerns what an organization does to fulfill a customer's quality requirements. The company said the accreditation will "benefit its customer base across the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, as well as research and academia."
