SynTech forms new US firm at ex-Bayer facility

The US contract research firm, SynTech Research (Davis, California), has formed a new company, SynTech Research Laboratory Services (Stillwell, Kansas), following an agreement to acquire Bayer CropScience’s US ecotoxicology facility at the Bayer Research Park near Stillwell. Thirteen of Bayer’s ecotoxicology staff at the site will transfer to SynTech and continue to perform studies for Bayer. SynTech intends to add staff to increase the unit’s capacity, particularly in regulatory/risk assessment. It is to also form a new analytical unit, which will include 12 former Bayer staff involved in sample processing, study management, quality assurance and administration. “We can now provide a complete package to our clients worldwide, including avian, aquatic, bee and non-target organism studies, accompanied by analytical and regulatory support,” says SynTech president and CEO Dr Khosro Khodayari.
