The Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC) is a Cambodian non-for-profit research institution established in 1953 and reopened in 1992.
IPC works under a convention signed with the Royal Government of Cambodia and the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) in 1992 and renewed in 2013. Under this convention, IPC operates under the auspice of both the Cambodian Ministry of Health and the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France).
As main mission, IPC carries out life science and health research on infectious diseases and emerging pathogens. IPC also supports public health surveillance and response through high-quality laboratories and epidemiology/clinical research capacities.
The International Vaccination Center offers the public a wide range of vaccines (pediatric and adult), including those of the national vaccination program. The vaccines selected meet international standards with appropriate management of the cold chain and quality control.
Since 2006, MET has been continuously providing its calibration service internally to all the research laboratories within IPC to ensure the accurate measurement of laboratory’s critical equipment. Following its recent accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2017, MET is now opening its calibration service to the public.
