Quality Management


Quality Management at the SFR BioSciences

The management of the SFR BioSciences is committed to continually improve its Quality System using ISO 9001 standards. Therefore it has established a dedicated Quality Management unit at the beginning of 2011. This unit is led by Patricia Barbot, who was appointed by the SFR BioSciences Director to lead and coordinate the implementation of the Quality projects of the core facilities, especially those of AniRA core facilities, certified by the national IBiSA label (IBiSA coordinates core facilities in the area of life sciences throughout France). The aim is to improve the organization of technical facilities to better meet the needs of the users but also to guarantee transparency, as well as accuracy and reliability of test results. For more information on the Management’s commitment to Quality, see lettre engagement.


Quality Projects

The certified core facilities of the SFR BioSciences are:

  • All the activities of the cytometry core facility AniRA Cytometry : the first Quality project was implemented in April 2011. In April 2013 the facility’s main site, CERVI Tower was certified ISO 9001:2008 by AFNOR. The certification was extended to the site of Bioaster (Lyon Biopôle) in April 2014.
  • The Experimental mouse models facility AniRA PBES :the second Quality project was implemented in 2012 in the Experimental mouse model facility (PBES) for the activity « PCR Genotyping ». ISO 9001 2008 certification was obtained in July 2014.
  • Protein Science Facility:  ISO 9001 2008 certification was obtained in May 2016 for all the activities of PSF.


The Quality Manager of the SFR BioSciences coordinates, proposes and implements all the quality projects of SFR Biosciences:

  • Identification of the needs,
  • Plan of action,
  • Process pilots management,
  • Quality documentation,
  • Quality meetings,
  • Audits,
  • Training on quality issues and assistance.


Since 2011, Patricia BARBOT has implemented the SFR’s quality policy, ISO 9001 certification, in the technical facilities. She has been with SFR BioSciences since 1 July 2002 and has the French research grade of ingénieur d’études IE2.
