Accreditation and certification

Analysis quality and customer service are very important to us. Therefore, the quality of our (bio-) analytical services is assured through an internal quality system including internal audits by our quality officer, and external auditing.

BDS is ISO/IEC 17025 (registration number RvA L401) accredited for bioanalysis of dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DR CALUX) and chemical analysis of dioxins, dioxin-like PCBs and non-dioxin-like PCBs (GC-MS/MS in various food and feed matrices. In addition, we are accredited for the analysis of (pseudo-) estrogens in water samples (e.g. influent, effluent, surface water).

In addition to the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation, we have proved to meet the B10 standard of the GMP+ certification scheme as part of the GMP+ Feed Safety Assurance of GMP+ International, as well as the standards for Q&S and KAT. Most recently, we have acquired approval from the California State Water Board for analysis of AhR ligands and estrogens in recycled water using our DR CALUX and  ERalpha CALUX methodologies.
