Move your organization toward global recognition, consistent operations, and a competitive advantage
The ANAB biobanking accreditation program was designed to improve the quality of biobanks through assuring compliance with the international standard, ISO 20387. ANAB accreditation will help move your organization toward global recognition, consistent operations, and a competitive advantage and will provide assurance of the quality of biobanking activities with the objective of promoting confidence in biobanking.
Biobanking accreditation is applicable to all organizations performing biobanking, including biobanking of biological material from multicellular organisms (e.g. human, animal, fungus and plant) and microorganisms for research and development. These can involve different types of organizations from independent legal entities or may reside within governmental entities, academic institutions, hospitals, non-profit or commercial organizations.
Biobanks may vary in the types of activities they perform. They can either perform the full range of activities including collecting/acquisitioning, preparing, preserving, testing, storage, analyzing and distributing biological materials and data, or a subset of these activities.
The ANAB biobanking accreditation program was designed to assure the quality of biobanks and the data produced through assuring compliance with ISO 20387. The objective of ISO 20387 is to promote confidence in biobanking. It contains requirements to enable biobanks to demonstrate competent biobank operation and the ability to provide biological material and associated data of appropriate quality for research and development.
Our goal through biobanking accreditation is to improve the quality of biobanks and the quality of the data they produce. ANAB accreditation managers and biobank experts have practical experience in the field and are often viewed as peers to the biobank.
The ANAB biobanking accreditation program is well-established and should be your choice for accreditation for medical testing laboratories.
