Success Story

"Guerbet Laboratories could not carry out particle counting by themselves, due to a lack of equipment and asked IFTS to be prepared in less than 5 weeks to a FDA inspection.
IFTS took up the challenge and satisfied all FDA requirements. IFTS' transparency and attention were much appreciated by the FDA inspector."
