Founded in 1990 in San Antonio, Texas, the company incorporated and became Germaine® Laboratories, Inc. in 1997. That same year was also a landmark year in the growth of the Germaine® Laboratories, Inc., when we completed our initial clinical trials for the AccuHome® urine pregnancy test and received our first 510(k) clearance from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Over the past 19 years our product lines have grown to include diagnostic tests for pregnancy, drugs of abuse, febrile antigens, fecal occult blood, H. pylori, ovulation, pork testing, serology, strep A and urinalysis. Our product line includes the brand names AccuHome®, Aim™, AimScreen™, AimStep®, AimStrip®, Compliance Gold®, CellFix™, SafeCup™ and StrepAim®.
All products sold by Germaine® Laboratories, Inc. are manufactured under strict quality control through cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) as overseen by the FDA. Our facility has also been approved to the Quality Management System Standards of ISO 13485:2003 and is applicable to the manufacture of In-Vitro diagnostic tests and reagents for professional, point of care, and self-test use for pregnancy, infectious disease, hematology, ovulation, fecal occult blood, drugs of abuse, serology, strep a, and urinalysis products.
These certifications attest to the quality standards set and achieved for the manufacture of the entire Germaine Laboratories product line.
