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.
