Quality, safety, and environment

Quality management

AMC Biobank has implemented a quality management system for the control and continuous improvement of high-quality storage of biological materials and the facilitation of data management. ISO9001:2015 certification has been obtained as of January 22th, 2018.

Safety

AMC Biobank complies to (inter)national standards, such as the PGS15 guideline for the storage of dangerous goods.

Environment

AMC Biobank works with Panasonic MDF-DU700VH-PE Eco VIP -80°C freezers that, by using natural hydrocarbon refrigerants with low global warming potential and minimizing energy consumption, reduce environmental impact and save money. For storage at -196°C, cost-efficient large-scale vapor phase tanks with very low liquid nitrogen consumption are used.
