Eurofins Agroscience Services achieves GLP Accreditation in Brazil

On December 1st 2009, the GLP inspection of our Brazilian facility in Indaiatuba was successfully completed making Eurofins do Brasil the first and only Latin American GLP accredited organisation in field, residue and GMO laboratory studies.

After receiving this Brazilian GLP accreditation, Eurofins do Brasil can perform GLP studies for national accreditations following national guidelines and for import tolerances following OECD/EPA guidelines.

We expect to receive the GLP certificate by February / March 2010 and will be accredited in the following areas:

Field trials

There is no other organisation in Latin America with such a complete scope of services that is able to cover field residue and efficacy studies along with seed testing.  The seed testing services include GMO contamination and detection of presence of GMO traits in early breeding phases.
