EPITRANS platform certified Iso9001: a new step, guaranteeing our concern for quality!

The Epigenomics and Translational Research in Plants (EPITRANS) platform has been certified by AFNOR as meeting the requirements of the Iso 9001:2015 standard.

EPITRANS is an analytical platform, with a staff of about ten people, designed to exploit the results of fundamental research in genetics and genomics to transfer them into traits of interest for marketed varieties by developing new tools. Our clients are from the private sector (seed companies) as well as the academic sector, and come from all geographical horizons (national and international). The platform's positioning and services have been recognized as strategic for INRAE since 2012 by the Commission Nationale des Outils Collectifs (CNOC), and later on by obtaining the status of a Collective Scientific Infrastructure (ISC) in 2018. Following this recognition and the recommendation of the “Délégation aux Infrastructures de Recherche” (DISC), we decided to integrate a quality management program into our organization with the objective of obtaining certification according to the Iso9001:2015 standard. This adventure required 2 years of preparation since the COVID crisis got involved. The platform was certified Iso9001 by the AFNOR on April 21st.


We would like to thank in particular the INRAE certification support platform (represented by E. Lemoine, A. Jaulin and D. Briard) who accompanied us throughout the duration of this certification and who were forces for education, advice, support and motivation. Their help, their expertise, their time and their conviction were precious and indispensable to the success of this project.


We would also like to thank all our clients, partners and collaborators for their trust over the years. We assure them of our will to continuously improve our services to always satisfy their needs.
