Quality & traceability ISO 9001:2008
Hichrom believe that quality assurance is fundamental to our operations at every level, and in 1994 we gained official recognition with the award of ISO 9001 accreditation. Every Hichrom manufactured column is supplied with documentation which enables a full audit trail to be performed from the point of manufacture to the time of use.

Environmental awareness ISO 14001:2004
Hichrom also places a great emphasis on environmental awareness, and in 1996 became the first chromatography company to receive approval of an ISO 14001 Environmental Management System. In doing so it adheres to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health regulations (1998), its amendments and other related legislation.

HICHROM aims to supply the highest quality HPLC columns and consumable products to the chromatography industry. We measure the quality  of our service not only in the product itself but in the nature of our technical consultancy and after-sales service. In doing so we aspire to achieve complete customer satisfaction and make an important contribution to the future of the life sciences and related chemical industries.
