Early stage screening

SynTech Research provides early stage Discovery screening services for Agrochemicals Biopesticides and Biostimulantsacross a broad range of crops, pests and microorganisms.

Our International Teams are led by Dr. Parsa Tehranchian at our Technical Center in Sanger (California) with additional teams in Nimes (France) and Valencia (Spain). These offer high-throughput screening for herbicides, insecticides, bactericides, fungicides, plant growth regulators, fertilizers, adjuvants, biopesticides, biostimulants and fertilizers.

We assist clients by providing screening and selection of exploratory materials, using relevant techniques for different targets, to understand their properties and make selections for further evaluation.

SynTech’s teams use their long research experience to provide specialized methodologies including customized experimental designs and research protocols, with expert interpretation of results. We have USDA APHIS and European agency permits for in vitro and in vivo studies on a broad range of pests.

SynTech’s US and EU Biosafety Level 2 Laboratories (BSL-2) are equipped for early stage research in Plant Biology, Weed Science, Entomology and Plant Pathology, including Mycological and Microbiological studies. 3000m2 of environmentally controlled greenhouses and laboratories allow complex in vitro translation trials all year round. Essential instrumentation includes laminar flow cabinets, incubators, growth chambers.

Laboratory and greenhouse studies, e.g. on heat stress, drought stress and enhanced pesticide tolerance are used for selecting preferred materials for progression. Our microbiological techniques allow screening of seed treatments with engineered microbes for crop protection and production.
