thinXXS gets the double!

thinXXS Microtechnology AG receives two essential and important seals of approval for its quality management – DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 13485.

The quality management of thinXXS Microtechnology has been certified twice: it meets the standard DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 13485.

This extensive process guarantees that all products of thinXXS Microtechnology, from the development and the manufacturing to the final inspection, are conforming to a  consistently high standard. In addition to the all-purpose standard DIN EN ISO 9001 as a base for a broad quality management, DIN EN ISO 13485 specifies the particular and constant international demands in the fields of medical technology.

Products which could be applied directly to human beings or which serve for diagnosis are subject to extremely high quality standards. For a multitude of  products, the implementation of a quality management system is an essential element of legal demands; in other cases, special customer requirements result in such a system and its qualification.

For thinXXS Microtechnology, a leading manufacturer of innovative plastic systems and components for the fields of medical diagnostics and life sciences, quality management is a self-evident part of its corporate philosophy. As a producer of Lab-on-chip systems, micropumps and customized microstructured devices, thinXXS is committed to the special requirements of its clients.

„Since the formation in 2001, quality is not only standing for the particular precision of our products but also for the reliability and transparency of thinXXS as a partner for our national and international customers. Regarding the certification DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO13485 our employees have achieved another important milestone. That makes us proud and that spurs us on to develop our quality management continuously as a part of our daily work.” says Dr. Lutz Weber, management board member for production and technology.
