SynTech has recently expanded its capabilities in the Asia Pacific Region. In the Southern Philippines, a satellite facility has been established in Davao, Mindanao, specializing in plantation crops such as banana, pineapple and mango.
In Thailand, a satellite at Kamphaeng Sean, Nakhon Pathom province, will deliver GLP residue and bio-efficacy trials in a range of crops. Both satellites will allow SynTech to expand its capability to meet demands to deliver import tolerance trials.
Date: 5-7 September 2017
Venue: Nice Acropolis Convention Center, Nice, France

At the 2017 SETAC Europe meeting in Brussels on 7-11 May, Eric Ythier (Global Ecotoxicology Account Manager), Line Deslandes (Terrestrial Ecotoxicology Team Lead, France), Cedric Pierru (Ecotoxicology Principal Investigator, France), Eva Garzón (Ecotoxicology Study Director, Spain) and Giulia Mautino (Registration Specialist, Italy) demonstrated the company’s Non-Target Terrestrial Plant (NTP) services, including its experience in producing and testing weed species.
SynTech’s NTP services include:
- Seedling emergence and growth test (OECD 208 and OCSPP 850.4100)
- Vegetative vigor test (OECD 227 and OCSPP 850.4150)
- Early seedling growth toxicity test (OCSPP 850.4230)
- NTP screens
Testing is conducted in climate-controlled greenhouses on our Europe and USA sites. Higher tier testing (field studies) are conducted on our field stations worldwide.
Studies are conducted on crops or weeds for emergence, dry weight, height, mortality and phytotoxicity. Reproduction (flowering, seed production and seed germination) can also be assessed.
The NTP benches can be treated with an automated track sprayer, have automated irrigation and are mobile, minimizing spatial differences during the studies.

SynTech Research Germany has been accredited for GLP field residues trials (OECD category 9) by the Bavarian State Agency for Health and Food Safety (Bayerisches Landesamt für Gesundheit und Lebensmittelsicherheit), following a full inspection in January, 2017. This accreditation includes multi-site study direction and the field phase of GLP trials, including residue, ecotoxicology, soil dissipation studies.
SynTech Germany can now conduct GLP as well as GEP programs on a wide range of crops, including: cereals, maize, sunflowers, potatoes, oilseed rape, vegetable and fruit crops, vines, ornamentals and turf; a number of trials including residues in pollen, nectar, and honey, have already been started.
SynTech Research has added to its global field trials network by opening a station in Romania, at Arad, situated in the west of the country. The main crops are cereals (maize, wheat, barley), oilseeds (canola, sunflower), soybean, forage, fruit and vegetables. The station has three full time staff, including the Romania Trial Coordinator, Sergiu Treer (transferring from SynTech Research Germany), and Szilveszter Nagy, both of whom have Masters degrees in crop protection.
As well as offices, laboratory, weighing room and storage areas, the facility has a self-contained visitors’ guesthouse. SynTech Research in Romania is already operating to GEP standards and is anticipating GEP certification in July/August 2017, covering the full spectrum of field, fruit and vegetable crops.
