Ecotoxicological studies

Environmental risk assessment deriving from ecotoxicological studies is a vital element in safety assessment of human and veterinary pharmaceuticals. Ecotoxicological studies are also a common requisite for numerous global regulatory agencies. Assessing possible toxic effects of agrochemicals or industrial chemicals, among others, on living organisms whether by direct exposure or accidental contact is fundamental to registration submissions across many industries.

Vivotecnia partners with a large and experienced worldwide community to help our customers meet REACH deadlines and achieve full REACH compliance.
