Highest degree of product Quality
It is the policy of bioTRADING to achieve the highest degree of product quality, ensuring that processes and services are continuously improved and in line with international standards and customer requirements.
The company's total commitment to quality and performance was reflected in 1994, when bioTRADING successfully achieved ISO 9001 accreditation. Furthermore, partly due to many external audits being regularly undertaken at our facility, our quality management systems is adapted to GMP. Click here for the ISO 9001:2008 certificate.
ISO 11133 & Harmonized USP/EP/JP
Our Ready Prepared Culture Media meet the ISO 11133 and harmonized USP/EP/JP formulations and performance criteria*.
Extensive quality control for sterility and bacterial growth parameters among others are carried out by our laboratory. Every batch of media is tested to international standards or to customer specifications. Organism challenges and sterility testing can be tailored to duplicate your present in-house methods, saving the customer a lot of time; less quality control to be performed by the customer.
