By pursuing and successfully obtaining ISO and USDA APHIS certifications, Bio-Techne solidifies its commitment to supporting the serum needs of high-quality research, development and manufacturing.
Dave Eansor, President of Bio-Techne’s Protein Sciences Segment, commented, “We are excited to earn the ISO 9001:2015 certification for our serum manufacturing facility.
