GLP residue and exposure research
Eurofins De Bredelaar performs trials and analysis in order to determine the safety of a new pesticide or use of a pesticide for humans, animals and the environment. Following standard procedures, crops are treated and residues are measured. The analysis of the samples is carried out in one of the several Eurofins Agroscience Services laboratories in Europe. All tests are designed and conducted according to OECD guidelines (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) principles and GLP guidelines (Good Laboratory Practice). Soil dissipation studies and Ecotox fieldwork is conducted in cooperation with the EAS Group ecotoxicology team that operates across all regions.
OPEX and re-entry studies / GLP research
OPEX studies are studies that determine to which extent the applicant of the treatment is exposed to the plant protection product. Re-entry studies are conducted to determine what interval must be taken into account between a crop treatment and exposing staff to the treated crop.
Demonstration and platform
In order to let dealers and end users get acquainted with your products, Eurofins De Bredelaar can provide demonstration trials at its onsite premises. Trials are designed according to the demands of the customers. In addition, clients are invited to visit these trials. These visits can be combined with a presentation for which a dedicated large meeting room is available.
Based in Elst, at this location there are two warehouses, an office and a glasshouse complex - this new glasshouse complex consists of several compartments, so multiple trials in different crops and under different conditions can be performed simultaneously. One of the warehouses contains conditioned storage rooms and laboratories. The site offers 24 ha of arable farmland for field trials. Also different types of machines for planting and harvesting including a combine are at hand.
In addition to our location in Elst, field trials are carried out at nurseries and arable farms throughout the country. In order to find the right location for your trial, an extensive network of farmers and (glasshouse) growers is on hand.
