Our Commitment to Sequencing Excellence: New Certifications

Date: 27 May 2024

Macrogen Europe is dedicated to upholding the highest standards in genetic research. Our recent adqusition update of EMQN CIC and ISO17025 certifications marks a significant date in 2024. These certifications not only bolster our credibility but also underscore our unwavering dedication to quality and precision in our laboratory operations. This achievement signifies a reinforcement of trust in our capabilities for our partners and customers.

 

The EMQN CIC certification is conferred by the European Molecular Genetics Quality Network, a non-profit organization specializing inexternal quality assessment. This certification is tailored for laboratories engaged in molecular genetic testing. The EMQN CIC ensures that our laboratory adheres to stringent standards of accuracy, reliability, and best practices ingenetic diagnostics.

 

Macrogen Europe actively participated in the assessment of 'DNA Sequencing – NGS (Germline)’ organized by EMQN. This evaluation, joined by 385 laboratories, scrutinized the sensitivity and precision of variant detection using whole genome sequencing and whole exome sequencing. Laboratories achieving an F-score above 90% for SNPs within high-confidence genome regions received the highest rating. Macrogen Europe was among the companies that reach that threshold and validate our steadfast commitment to delivering quality and precision in our outcomes for NGS Services.

 

ISO17025 is an internationally recognized certification that attests to the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. Beyond validating the proper calibration and maintenance of our laboratory equipment, this certification ensures that our personnel are suitably qualified to conduct tests and calibrations and adhere to standardized methods and procedures.

It guarantees our customers that our laboratory processesare reliable, accurate, and consistent, thereby underlining our dedication to generating high-quality data critical for advanced genetic research. This certification also assures that our methodologies meet international standards,enhancing the credibility of our customers’ research outcomes.

These certifications not only validate our technical capabilities but also reaffirm our commitment to our customers by upholding the highest standards of laboratory excellence. These achievements underscore ourrole as a trusted partner in the scientific community, dedicated to advancing genomic discoveries.
