Nearmedic Becomes First Russian Full-Cycle Production Holding An ISO 18385 Certificate

Launched on October 31, the full cycle production of kits for genetic identification and establishment of kinship (project «DNA») has received an ISO 18385 international certificate of conformity. This certificate confirms the up-to-date character and quality of the launched production. The ISO 18385 standard «Minimizing the risk of human DNA contamination in products used to collect, store and analyze biological material for forensic purposes» combines the requirements of GMP and specific requirements for kits used in forensic examination.

This standard, introduced in 2016, is the key document for the production of molecular genetic kits used in forensics. The world’s major manufacturers are certified to this standard. Nearmedic became the first Russian company possessing this certificate joining the ranks of such market leaders as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Promega and Qiagen.
