Your specialist for ecotoxicological investigations
Qualified testing services for industry and agriculture
Plant protection products must not have an unacceptable impact on the environment. Extensive, legally prescribed ecotoxicological tests must therefore investigate the effect of new pesticides on various animal and plant species that represent the natural flora and fauna. As an established contract laboratory with in-depth environmental chemistry know-how, we offer a wide range of tests for the authorization and registration of crop protection products, biocides, chemicals and veterinary pharmaceuticals.
Our service for manufacturers and distributors of pesticides
Our state-of-the-art laboratory complex enables us to perform aquatic and terrestrial testing to assess the risks of pesticides, fertilizers and chemicals.
In addition to standard laboratory studies, we also offer higher-tier studies in greenhouses, semi-free-field conditions and in the field - we can draw on a broad network of test sites and its excellent infrastructure.
Performing GLP-compliant tests is based on the current OECD, ISO, IOBC, EPPO, and EPA guidelines, as well as our many years of experience in the field.

- Aquatic plants / algae
- Aquatic degradation studies
- Field tests
- Semi-field tests
- Laboratory tests
