When you join ISIA, you’re joining a force for scientific progress.
Oritain and ISIA have teamed up to create an industry wide data-base for the geographic testing of bovine serum to help ensure product integrity in our industry.
This study differentiates fetal bovine serum from newborn calf serum on the basis of biochemical composition. ISIA and its members are leading the industry with this work.
ISIA has gathered a team of experts in all aspects of Gamma Irradiation to define the necessary steps for this process to be properly performed. four articles have already been published by this group, with two more coming soon.
This program developed by ISIA now gives serum users confidence in the integity of the supply chain of that serum. Only ISIA members are eligible to obtain this important certification trusted world-wide.
Members of the International Serum industry Association are collectors, processors and users of animal serum and animal derived products. These products are used extensively in the growth of cells in culture for research and in the production of diagnostic kits, vaccines and biotherapeutic molecules.
ISIA shall establish, promote and assure compliance with uncompromised standards of excellence and ethics in the business practices of the global animal serum and animal derived products supply industry.
Our primary focus will continue to be on safety and safe use of serum and animal derived products through proper origin traceability, and truth in labeling, and appropriate standardization and oversight.
We will work to educate stakeholders on the scientific foundation of the safe use of serum and animal derived products.
If you will be near either of these venues and would like know more about ISIA, plan to attend the meeting. Dr. Rosemary Versteegen, the ISIA CEO, will be discussing the global use of serum, ISIA's mission, initiatives, and other important topics regarding our industry.
