Environmental chemistry (GLP) services

GLP quality assurance auditing service

With its global field station network and analytical laboratories in the USA, Brazil and Hungary, SynTech is able to offer a complete program including protocol development, field trial conduct, sample analysis and report writing.

Study types

Field trials

SynTech’s global network of field trial facilities in over 30 countries ensures comprehensive coverage of all key crops and provides timely delivery of high quality studies. SynTech’s agronomists perform a range of field, greenhouse and laboratory GEP and GLP tests to determine dissipation, residue and acute and chronic effects of all classes of pesticide chemistry on organisms.
