ISO Registration

At BioChain, we use a quality management system to help us identify and meet customer needs. ISO 9001 is a process-based quality management system that has been adopted by many countries around the world to improve and maintain the reliability and quality of products. These standards are developed and maintained by the international Organization for Standardization, and they apply to many industries, including life science reagent and solution suppliers. We have pursued this standard since 2008 and have been recertified consistently. 

ISO 13485 is another internationally recognized standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system for medical device manufacture and related services. We have obtained this standard since 2013.  The certification of ISO 13485 further establishes our assurance to meet customer and applicable regulatory requirements.  Certification and recertification of these two doctrines (ISO 9001, and 13485) demonstrates BioChain’s proven commitment to quality through an internationally recognized standard.
