Oxford Gene Technology is committed to providing customers with the highest quality products and services. We also understand that information assets should be handled with the utmost care to prevent loss. To meet these needs, we have developed an integrated management system and we have been awarded several independent certifications and accreditations.
OGT Management System
Our management system is continually monitored and improved, and is subject to regular internal audit by trained management system auditors as well as independent external audits by certification and accreditation bodies.
Independent certifications and accreditations
Certified by BSI since June 2010, ISO 9001:2008 certification of our quality management system demonstrates our commitment to the delivery of products and services of the highest quality. OGT maintains systems that enable us to meet expectations as well as continually improve our business practices in a changing world. View our certificate
OGT array-based comparative genomic hybridisation services (array-CGH, aCGH) have been accredited by United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) since January 2011. Accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is independent confirmation that OGT maintains a process-driven management system and that staff are technically competent to carry out the specific type of testing.
ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation of our aCGH services enables customers to use OGT services in the highest confidence that the data and results generated are technically valid. As such, OGT services will fit directly into client’s workflows and complement existing management systems that are also accredited (e.g. CPA, ISO 15189). View schedule of accreditation
ISO 27001:2005 certification acknowledges that ‘information’ (in all forms; written, verbal, electronic, personnel and materials) is of highest value to OGT’s stakeholders and clients, demonstrating that we have put systems in place to protect information that we have been entrusted to use.
The OGT information security management system, certified by BSI since August 2010, ensures that formalised procedures are in place for the protection of all types of information, as a matter of course. Should problems occur, business continuity procedures and disaster recovery plans ensure that information is protected, while priority services and access to information are maintained.

Agilent Certified Service Provider / Agilent High-Throughput Certified Service Provider
OGT has been awarded Agilent Certified Service Provider since 2008 and Agilent High-Throughput Certified Service Provider since 2010. These certificates were granted following rigorous assessment of the high-quality experimental data routinely generated by OGT’s unique high-throughput analysis service – Genefficiency™. OGT was the first company to be awarded the prestigious Agilent High-Throughput Certified Service Provider status following on from our successful completion of the world’s largest CNV study where over 20,000 samples were processed in less than 20 weeks.
Cytogenetics European Quality Assessment (CEQA)
Each year we take part in assessment by CEQA (Cytogenetic European Quality Assessment), which is an external quality assessment scheme that independently assesses performance of cytogenetic testing laboratories.
