A first for a genomics service provider in Germany
GLP accreditation offering the highest quality services to all customers.
Ebersberg, Germany November 12, 2014 - Eurofins Genomics, the genomics division of the Eurofins Scientific Group and international market leader in genomic services, has now achieved Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) certification for DNA sequencing services, the first genomic service provider in Germany to attain such qualification.
GLP standards are critical for the development of diagnostic kits and device validation (FDA and patent submissions), the analyses of production strains and GMO plants like genetic stability testing (e.g. analysis of inserted DNA and its transcripts, etc.). Eurofins Genomics is GLP certified for "DNA sequencing for genotyping and safety testing of GMOs, microorganisms, viruses, cell banks and cell lines". With this certificate, Eurofins Genomics offers not only Sanger sequencing services under GLP, but also next generation sequencing (NGS) applications.
Providing these services to GLP will prove invaluable to the agricultural industry, not only with applications in plant breeding but also in other areas such as genome sequencing of beneficial and non-beneficial organisms.
"With the addition of the certified GLP standard to our DNA sequencing portfolio, Eurofins Genomics is even more able to provide services to the highest demands on quality of the regulatory authorities," says Bruno Poddevin, Senior Vice President Eurofins Genomics.
