Syntech Brazilian facility accredited
Brazilian authorities have granted accreditation to US-based contract research and development company SynTech Research’s facilities in Piracicaba, Brazil. SynTech’s Brazilian operation, Syntech Research do Brasil, can carry out GLP field studies for accreditations following national guidelines and for import tolerances following OECD/EPA guidelines, it says. The company expects to receive its GLP certificate by April this year. SynTech recently formed a partnership in Brazil with Bioagri Laboratorios (Piracicaba – Agrow No 580, p 11). It will handle the laboratory portion of the GLP studies. The partnership also operates in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico.
