Home > Press > Advance Nanotech Subsidiary Receives ISO9001 Certification

Abstract:
Advance Nanotech, Inc., (BULLETIN BOARD: AVNA) , a leading provider of financing and support services to drive the commercialization of nanotechnology related products for homeland security and display technologies, today announced that its Owlstone Nanotech subsidiary has received registration to ISO 9001.

Advance Nanotech Subsidiary Receives ISO9001 Certification

New York, NY | Posted on October 11th, 2007

Certification was awarded in recognition of Owlstone's compliance with quality process standards and effective quality management systems in the design and manufacture of chemical detection products. The purpose of the standard is to create, maintain and improve a Quality Management System (QMS), which profitably satisfies customers and ensures compliance with all relevant statutory requirements now and in the future.

"Our product quality represents a key factor in its effectiveness when deployed in any particular environment. Achieving this certification clearly demonstrates the seriousness with which we take issues concerning product consistency and reliability," said Bret Bader, CEO of Owlstone Nanotech, Inc.

Commenting on the accreditation, Tony Goncalves, CEO of Advance Nanotech, Inc., said, "This is a very significant milestone resulting from many months of effort for which we thank our UK team in Cambridge and US team in New Jersey. The timing of this accreditation could not be better given that Owlstone recently launched its Lonestar product line primarily targeted to the industrial process control market."

More product information, pictures and technical specifications on the Lonestar product line can be found at Owlstone's updated website: http://www.owlstonenanotech.com/

ISO 9001 applies to industries involved in the design and development, manufacturing, installation, and servicing of products. The standard is internationally recognized standard for running a business and provides a framework for managing and improving an organization's performance. ISO 9001 applies uniformly to companies in any industry and of any size. ISO9000 was adopted by the International Organization for Standardization in 1987 and was influenced by existing U.S. and other Defense Standards, and, consequently, was well-suited to manufacturing high-tech products such as munitions and other defense related equipment.
