ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ:CDXC) announced today it has achieved ISO/IEC 17025:2017 quality standard for laboratory testing, the world’s most respected quality management standard. This accreditation covers testing of the Company’s Tru Niagen® consumer products, its Niagen® ingredient, and phytochemical reference standards performed out of its quality control and R&D facility in Longmont, Colorado. The accreditation requires demonstration of full and continuous compliance with the most rigorous ISO quality standards, enabling ChromaDex to test and analyze its Tru Niagen® product, ingredients, and reference standards.
The ISO 17025 accreditation validates the technical proficiency of the state-of-the-art ChromaDex laboratory and its proven ability to consistently generate highly accurate, scientifically defensible product quality data that is traceable to and compliant with international standards.
“This latest accreditation recognizes ChromaDex’s consistency in meeting the highest international standards in quality control,” ChromaDex CEO Rob Fried commented. “Our global partners such as Nestlé have learned to expect these designations along with world-class clinical data.”
Dr. Andrew Shao, ChromaDex Senior Vice President of Global Scientific & Regulatory Affairs, added, “The quality and reliability of our products is affirmed through this process. This accreditation helps provide health regulators with confidence in the quality and science behind our products in markets across the globe.”
