Seegene, a South Korean company providing a total solution for PCR molecular diagnostics, achieved an ISO45001 certification on Dec. 27, 2023.

The Occupational Health and Safety Management System (ISO45001) is one of the certification standards established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2018, according to Seegene.

ISO45001 involves rigorous assessments based on international standards. Therefore, obtaining this certification signifies that a company possesses an occupational health and safety management system that complies with these requirements, Seegene says.

British Standards Institution(BSI), the world’s first national standards body founded in 1901, examined Seegene’s eligibility for the ISO45001.

Nine of Seegene’s facilities received certification for having established management systems compliant with global occupational health and safety standards. 

Seegene has 20 years of dedicated research experience around syndromic PCR technologies, which was highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic when it provided over 340 million COVID-19 tests in more than 100 countries worldwide, the company says.

Earlier this year, Seegene declared the commencement of sharing its syndromic PCR technologies all over the world in an effort to prevent future pandemics. Seegene says it aims to partner with nationally reputable companies in each country to develop and manufacture customized syndromic PCR tests locally through access to Seegene’s proprietary technologies. This effort will enable partnering companies to effectively address potential disease outbreaks.
