Zyomyx, Inc. Receives ISO 13485: 2003 Certification

FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zyomyx, Inc., developer of the first quantitative disposable CD4 diagnostic, has achieved ISO 13485: 2003 certification for its quality management system. Certification was awarded by BSI, one of the world's leading certification bodies.

Achieving ISO 13485: 2003 certification is a critical first step toward both WHO Pre-Qualification and a CE mark. WHO Pre-Qualification requires a quality management system to ensure Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and is the regulatory clearance recognized by many policy makers, global health funding organizations, and governments of developing countries. A CE mark is the regulatory clearance requirement recognized in Europe and by many other countries and global health funding organizations. 

"ISO 13485 certification is a major corporate milestone for Zyomyx that moves us closer to the expected launch of our innovative CD4 point-of-care test this year," said Peter Wagner , CEO of Zyomyx, Inc. "This strengthens the confidence our customers and partners have in Zyomyx and provides a solid foundation as we adapt our novel platform technology for other clinical applications as a leader in the commercialization of highly accessible cell count diagnostics."
