The ADDL’s Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Laboratory reached another milestone as the laboratory received the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. The laboratory was fully accredited by the American Association of Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA). ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation is the single most important standard for calibration and testing laboratories around the world. To receive the ISO 17025 accreditation, the laboratory has demonstrated to be technically proficient and able to produce precise and accurate test results. In addition to the NGS laboratory, ADDL’s Bacteriology Laboratory and Virology Laboratory are also accredited by A2LA for FDA OEQAP Salmonella Enteritidis culture for environmental samples and for pseudorabies ELISA assays.
