20th October 2015

Eurofins Agroscience Services, the leading global service provider for agrochemical testing, has created a new company within Eurofins Agroscience Services Group, namely:

  • Eurofins Agroscience Services Ecotox GmbH

This is actually EAS EcoChem splitting into two legal entities; EAS EcoChem and EAS Ecotox, both based in Niefern, Germany. The expertise and study performance will be allocated as follows:

  • EAS EcoChem GmbH will be responsible for residue analysis, e-fate, metabolism and physical chemical studies (Managing Directors: Dr. Martin Feyerabend and Klaus Kuegler)
  • EAS Ecotox GmbH will be responsible for all aquatic and terrestrial ecotoxicology laboratory and Ecotox field studies (Managing Directors: Dr. Marco Candolfi and Dr. Friedrich Knecht)

This is an organizational change only, designed to increase organisational flexibility; smaller units lead to faster decision making processes and adaptation capacities.  At the same time, both companies continue to benefit from the larger, corporate, worldwide group facilities of Eurofins.  


Current staff will be allocated to the respective companies, with the Niefern site increasing in size by 65%; a new building will be available mid-2016, allowing further organic growth of both companies.

EAS Group Study Directors will keep existing clients informed on any change that may affect ongoing studies (e.g. change of test facility name).  We would like to ensure you that we will maintain the good reputation we have established and will continue to improve our services to provide excellent quality studies.

Please direct any questions to Dr Friedrich Knecht;
