AGROSCIENCES โ€“ ANALYTICAL TESTING

ADPEN Laboratories has a strong commitment to protecting our environment and public health. We work diligently with the agrochemical industry in its effort to ensure product compliance with the latest government regulatory requirements. ADPEN offers a full range of analytical testing services to support agrochemical development and pesticide registration efforts. These analytical services include Impurity Profiling and the 5-batch Analysis test, which are central requirements for the registration of agrochemical products. ADPEN is also set up to analyze for atrazine, its metabolites and other triazines in water, plant tissue, fruits, soil, feed, food and other matrices using state-of-the-art LC-MS/MS methodology. All of our agrochemical and analytical testing services and studies comply with EPA, FIFRA, OECD, Good Laboratory Practices (GLP), and international guidelines. Our research and development groups can provide analytical services in the following areas:
