We also comply with ISO 13485 for the in vitro production of monoclonals and all analytical lab studies are conducted in a GLP environment.
Each animal is selected with the highest vigilance and identified to guarantee traceability. Animal sources are strictly controlled.
SPF rabbits are bred in house to allow sanitary control and flexibility.
An internal Ethical Committee is in place, which plays a strategic role in evaluating each new protocol and carrying out reviews every 5 years.
We successfully completed over 130 audits, both from the authorities and industrial sponsors.
