Certificates and Approvals

To guarantee our customers the highest quality products, BIOTECON Diagnostics Kits performs not only extensive internal validations, but also external validations by independent institutions such as the AOAC Research Institute, MicroVal, NordVal and DAFF to obtain these certifications. External validations usually include a detailed comparison with reference methods (ISO, BAM, USDA) and a ring trial with several accredited laboratories.
Many of BIOTECON Diagnostics pathogen kits (e.g. Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, E. coli O157, Cronobacter and Enterobacteriaceae) are certified. Additional new validations are also carried out continuously.
