Bayer opens two Brazilian labs

Bayer CropScience has opened two laboratories at its Brazilian headquarters in Sao Paulo. The “biosafety analysis” laboratory has been accredited by the Brazilian technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, for carrying out research on genetically modified organisms. The DNA level studies should speed up company programmes on cotton, rice, soybeans and sugar cane, among other key crops for the region. The “food safety” facility has been accredited by the Ministry of Trade’s national metrological, regulatory and industrial quality institute, the Inmetro, as well as the CTNBio. It will be employed for “detailed” residue studies for new and current products with state-of the-art equipment. “The opening of the … laboratories will bring agility, quality and flexibility in carrying out studies in crop protection technologies and strengthen our breeding programmes,” Bayer CropScience’s president for Latin America, Marc Reichardt, says.
