Quality Assurance

We are committed to world-class standards through robust scientific and data processes. Our processes are optimized to ensure we deliver results of utmost quality while maintaining sample and data integrity. Our well-established quality management system is supported by global accreditation and lab certifications.

Information Technology and Cybersecurity

The privacy and protection of information entrusted to us by our employees, clients and suppliers is a matter Nexelis takes very seriously, and upper management has decided to further strengthen cybersecurity awareness and prevention within our team as a part of the company culture.

Nexelis reached the conclusion that the single approach ensuring the depth of knowledge and resources needed to maintain state of the art cybersecurity procedures was to outsource that function to a tier one IT provider.

After a consultation with three global companies, Nexelis has chosen CGI to fill that role.

Founded in 1976, and headquartered in Montreal, QC, CGI is among the largest IT and business consulting services firms in the world with 76,000 consultants situated in 400 locations.
