SHANGHAI, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellular Biomedicine Group (OTCQB:EBIGD) announced today that it has recently achieved both ISO 9001:2008 certification and ISO-14644 cleanroom certification.
Cellular Biomedicine Group has been accredited the ISO (International Standards Organization) 9001:2008 certification by internationally recognized quality management system SGS and ISO-14644 cleanroom certification from ENV.

The certificate is issued by American National Accreditation Bureau (ANAB). To date CBMG is the only cell therapy company in China to be awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certification by SGS.
