On 25 January 2018, the British Standards Institution (BSI) presented a cheque for 2,000 euros to support our Foundation’s in-house laboratory. This is the proceeds from two information events that BSI held in 2017 on the new European regulations in the areas of medical technology (MDR) and in-vitro diagnostics (IVDR).
“It is important to us to use our donation to support the foundation in its research into the development, overcoming and therapy of chemoresistance in tumours, and thus to contribute to the promotion of therapy concepts and treatment options for children with cancer,” says Dr Michael Weißig, responsible for BSI’s Healthcare division in Europe. Christoph Bracker, Marketing Manager for BSI’s Medical Technology Division, emphasises that “with its range of services in the certification of, among others, in vitro diagnostic companies, BSI contributes to supporting patients in their recovery in the long term. In this way, we are already assuming social responsibility through our service.”
Dirk Kammertöns, Managing Director of the Foundation, is happy about such donations: “The Foundation is 100% financed by private donations. Because of this, we are particularly pleased when companies such as the British Standards Institution, which operate in a similar medical field, support us in helping children with cancer.”
