UgenTec, the Belgian bioinformatics company that is developing universal & intelligent PCR analysis software, has received its ISO 13485 certification. Quickly following the new certification, UgenTec also obtained the CE-IVD label for its first product, FastFinder.
SGS and the Belgian Accreditation Organization (BELAC) granted UgenTec the ISO-certificate for "design, development, manufacturing, installation, and service of in-vitro diagnostic software for analysis and interpretation of real-time PCR data." The company also implemented the harmonized standard IEC:62304 "software for medical devices."
