Netanya, Israel (PRWEB) October 25, 2010
Aspect Magnet Technologies, the leading compact MRI system provider for preclinical research, today announced that its quality management system has been certified as complying with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 following a review by the independent audit firm Institute of Quality & Control in Israel.
The ISO certification assures Aspect’s customers, such as leading biotech, pharmaceutical and academic researchers, that the company has a robust quality management system that controls its equipment design, calibration, and maintenance activities. These elements are essential to allowing customers to meet Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) guidelines for conducting research studies. Aspect’s quality management system addresses all parts of the ISO 9001:2008 standard, including product conceptualization, design and development, testing, manufacturing, shipping and support.
“Obtaining certification for the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard is an important recognition of Aspect’s work,” commented Uri Rapoport, founder and chief executive officer of Aspect. “This achievement demonstrates that we deliver the highest quality standards for our biotechnology, pharmaceutical, academic and medical community customers who are conducting preclinical imaging as part of their research in a wide range of areas such as cardiac and vascular disease, cancer, stem cell research and developmental biology.”
ISO 9001:2008, which is administered by the International Organization for Standardization, is recognized globally as the guideline for establishing and maintaining an effective quality management system for business in any sector. Companies seeking registration must be able to demonstrate to the satisfaction of an independent third-party auditor an ability to consistently provide products that meet customer and regulatory requirements. ISO 9001 has existed for almost 20 years. In 2008, the standard was revised, placing more emphasis on continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
