Absolute Antibody Ltd., an industry-leading manufacturer of recombinant antibodies, announces its manufacturing facility based in Wilton Centre, Redcar, England has been certified under ISO 9001:2015 as of December 17, 2018. 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. International Organization for Standardization (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 ISO 9001:2015 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, ideal for diagnostic developers as well as researchers working in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and academia.

We are proud to have an excellent quality management system (QMS) 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.”

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.
