Dermal Absorption

Eurofins Agroscience Services offers a broad spectrum of analytical services needed for the registration of agrochemicals and biocides

As exposure to many chemicals occurs mainly via contact with the skin, knowledge of this percutaneous absorption is required by the authorities and is essential to assess the operator exposure.

With more than 15 years of expertise in dermal absorption studies, our expert team can investigate the dermal penetration of your plant protection products (including biocides and biocontrols).

With this team of technical experts, a commitment to quality and a flexible approach to projects, our main objective is to support you in achieving acceptable results for your dossier in the timelines you need.
