Absolute Antibody Ltd, Oxford, UK, a leading manufacturer of recombinant antibodies, has announced that its manufacturing facility based in Wilton Center, Redcar, England, has been certified under the ISO 9001:2015 quality system standard compiled by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).

The newly expanded state-of-the-art facility was designed with a focus on the standards to provide customers and distributors with the highest level of quality. ISO 9001:2015 is the most updated standard of its kind, and its globally recognized guidelines for manufacturing facilities specify requirements for quality systems, feedback data management, and controlled manufacturing processes to ensure safe, reliable products.

The certification strengthens Absolute Antibody’s diagnostic offerings, which enable customers worldwide to use antibody sequencing, engineering, and expression services to develop superior diagnostic assays. The company’s recombinant antibody technology delivers highly reliable antibodies in any format—suitable for diagnostic developers as well as for researchers working in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and academia.

“Receipt of our ISO 9001:2015 certification demonstrates our company’s commitment to our customer base,” says Nicholas Hutchings, DPhil, founder and CEO of Absolute Antibody. “Our goal has always been to deliver the highest level of quality and customer satisfaction. We are proud to have an excellent quality management system in place to measure and monitor for consistent outcomes, which will increase our efficiency and productivity, furthering our capabilities to offer antibodies for the diagnostics market.”

Last year, Absolute Antibody merged with Kerafast Inc, Boston, to expand its product and service portfolio and provide more efficient delivery to its large North American customer base. Fueled by the recent increase in adoption of recombinant antibody technology, the company has grown significantly, and adherence to ISO 9001:2015 guidelines will enable Absolute Antibody to continue to expand its catalog and custom service offerings.
