This GMP certification acknowledges PathoQuest's testing activities meet the established high-quality control standards required by the biopharmaceutical industry.

PathoQuest today offers viral safety testing services and genetic characterization of biologic s.

"Obtaining the GMP certification confirms that our quality management system meets the requirements and is at the expected level by the health authorities,” stated Violaine Mélen, PharmD, PathoQuest’s Chief Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs Officer and Qualified Person. The GMP certification for our biosafety testing services completes our GLP certificate obtained in January 2020 and the Pharmaceutical Establishment status achieved in September 2020. Offering GMP-grade genomic testing services is our pledge of quality to the biopharmaceutical industry, the health authorities and for the safety of the patient.

Gaining this GMP certification is a major milestone in the implementation of PathoQuest’s growth strategy and strengthens our leadership in the quality control testing of biologics,” commented Jean-Francois Brepson, PathoQuest’s CEO. "By offering these testing services we will enable our clients to entrust their vaccine, cell and gene therapy, and other innovative therapies projects to PathoQuest, from early preclinical phases to commercial supply. We believe this represents a tremendous advantage for biopharmaceutical companies when they evaluate contract manufacturing alternatives that are faster, safer and 3R-compliant at a Good Manufacturing Practice grade. Those assets make PathoQuest the ideal partner.”

PathoQuest’s GMP certificate is available for our clients to download from our website along with the company’s current GLP certificate and the notice of achieving Pharmaceutical Establishment status.
