ImaGenes Lands ISO Certification

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – ImaGenes has been granted ISO 9001:2008 certification from the German Society for Certification and Management Systems (DQS) for its genomics and proteomics services, the Berlin-based company said today.

ImaGenes distributes next-generation sequencing services using Illumina's Genome Analyzer II Sytems for Germany and Austria, and it is a certified service provider for Affymetrix, Agilent, and NimbleGen's microarray technologies.

The certification covers the company's DNA microarray services, bioinformatics analyses, and distribution of validated clone material.

The certification covers the latest standards, and the firm believes it should help lure customers from the pharmaceutical research field in particular, said ImaGenes Director of Genomic Products and Marketing Johannes Maurer.
