In 2020, the Institute of Cell Therapy once again confirmed the international quality certificate ISO 9001:2018. The accreditation is valid till 2023 and includes all structural departments of the Institute (Cell Therapy Clinic, Cryobank, Centre of Science).
In 2014, the Institute of Cell Therapy became the first umbilical cord blood bank in Ukraine to receive the prestigious international ISO accreditation. Audit was conducted by the German company TUV Rheinland/LGA InterCert.
ISO is an international standardization organization founded in 1947. The purpose of ISO is to ratify the standards developed by various countries around the world to ensure that products manufactured by a certified company or services provided by it meet a single international quality standard accepted in different countries of the world. Thus, international ISO standards guarantee that the products or services of a certified company are safe, reliable and of good quality.
An important requirement of the ISO quality management system is a detailed description of all procedures and manipulations performed on the basis of a certified company, as well as unconditional adherence to prescribed protocols and instructions. Also in accordance with the requirements of the ISO standard, a certified company is obliged to constantly monitor the processes performed and analyze the results. This organization of work eliminates errors.
The control of compliance of the certified quality management system with the requirements of this standard is carried out conducting external supervisory audits.
Thus, during 6 years all structural subdivisions of the Institute of Cell Therapy (Cryobank, Clinic, Center of Science) have been undergoing regular independent audits for compliance with the ISO standard.
Certification of the Institute of Cell Therapy according to the requirements of ISO 9001:2018 provides the patients of the Clinic additional guarantees of the highest quality medical services.
The Institute of Cell Therapy will continue making every effort to meet high international quality standards and justify the trust of its patients.
