We successfully renewed our ISO 9001/2015 and NF X50-900:2016 certifications in July 2016.
 
"The spontaneous satisfaction expressed by our clients, our contribution as author and co-author of scientific publications, our representativeness in national (Celphedia, PHENOMIN) and international (IMPC) networks, and our foresight in ensuring ethical practices and animal well-being, are all evidence that consolidate the quality approach we first began in July 2013. Backed by the progress made, we are henceforth endowed with a management system we consider to be an adapted tool for progress in the service of our organisation and its environment"
