As an integral part of the pesticide registration process, residue chemistry services are important to agrochemical companies. Residue chemistry guidelines are required to monitor the safety of pesticide use in human food and animal feed. Residue Chemistry is also integral to the assessment of dietary risks associated with pesticide use. As a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) compliant agricultural chemistry laboratory, EPL Bio Analytical Services (EPL BAS) is a contract research organization (CRO) laboratory that provides residue chemistry data needed to meet the requirements of registration guidelines. In addition to analytical capabilities, EPL BAS Scientists have a complete understanding of the regulatory concerns on which the guidelines are based.
Scientists at EPL BAS have the knowledge and expertise to provide the most accurate agrochemical data for successful pesticide registration. EPL BAS has repeatedly demonstrated these capabilities to provide timely and efficient completion of residue chemistry studies.
