Prestigious accreditation demonstrates company’s commitment to quality, competency, and reliability
LINCOLN, Neb., April 5, 2022 — NEOGEN Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that its Genetic Veterinary Sciences, Inc. (GVS) facility has received ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation from the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) — the highest recognized quality standard in the world for testing and calibration laboratories.
ISO/IEC 17025 is one of the most important internationally recognized quality standards and was developed to promote confidence in testing and calibration labs by setting requirements to demonstrate competency and ability to generate valid results.
Receiving the accreditation means that test reports and certificates generated by the Spokane, Washington-based laboratory can now be generally accepted from one country to another without further testing.
“We are incredibly proud to receive this important accreditation, demonstrating our commitment to quality, competency, and reliability in our laboratory personnel and processes,” said Marylinn Munson, Vice President of Genomics at NEOGEN. “This accreditation exemplifies our discipline to upholding rigorous quality management systems. Veterinarians, breeders, and owners of companion animals around the world can be reassured that GVS tests are accurate, precise, and produce valid test results.”
