Staphyt acquires Heliantis
French contract research organisation (CRO) Staphyt (Inchy-en-Artois) has acquired the crop protection business of the French CRO, Heliantis Experimentations (St Paul les Romans). The two companies formed a strategic alliance in 2011. With the acquisition, Staphyt’s geographical reach has been extended to include the Rhone Valley (north and south of Lyon) with two field stations in Saint Paul les Romans and Villefranche sur Saône. The additions have increased the number of Staphyt’s field stations to 20.
