ExcelVite is pleased to announce that its in-house laboratory has been awarded the 2015 Laboratory Excellence Award by the IKM (Institut Kimia Malaysia / Malaysian Institute of Chemistry).
The award is presented by IKM, the professional body that regulates the Chemists Act in Malaysia and is responsible for certifying the competency and maintenance of integrity of its members, especially those performing laboratory analysis pertaining to local legislation in the fields of health, safety and environment. In addition to the needs of analytical laboratories to operate a robust quality system, be technically competent and generate accurate results, the Award also requires laboratories to operate with safety and health features in the workplace.
Recently, IKM performed an audit at ExcelVite and certified that its laboratory has achieved quality goals as stipulated in the international accreditation of ISO/IEC 17025 standards (which ExcelVite has successfully obtained since 2007) and Laboratory Excellence Award requirements. The certification specifically highlighted the competency of ExcelVite’s testing of phytonutrients namely tocotrienols, carotenoids (alpha-, beta-carotene and lycopene) and palm methyl ester that meets the stringent criteria of ISO/IEC 17025 standards.
This award further demonstrates the commitment of ExcelVite to inculcate best laboratory practices in its laboratory personnel via ExcelVite’s high end, state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to the accurate analysis of ExcelVite’s products.
“In addition to being the only GMP-certified producer of tocotrienol in the market, our success in obtaining the IKM Laboratory Excellence Award underscores ExcelVite’s untiring efforts in achieving quality goals as stipulated in the ISO/IEC17025 Standards, as part of a robust QC/QA system currently in place at ExcelVite,” says Mr WH Leong, CEO, ExcelVite Sdn. Bhd.
“As the pioneer in the production of palm-based phytonutrient products – specifically the EVNol SupraBio™ bioenhanced full spectrum palm tocotrienol complex, EVTene™ mixed carotenoids complex, and EVRol™ phytosterol complex, it is our commitment and dedication to establishing Excellence in all aspects of the process. Our valued customers are guaranteed of the highest quality products with stringent standards in quality and safety – right from raw materials, to finished products in terms of competency of our personnel, technology, production, quality control.” adds WH Leong.
