Brazil grants Eurofins GLP accreditation
Contract research company Eurofins’ Brazilian operation, Eurofins do Brasil, is to operate the only GLP-accredited laboratory facilities for field trials, residue analysis and genetically modified organism studies in Latin America, it claims. That follows the accreditation granted to it by the Brazilian authorities earlier this month. The Indaiatuba facility in Sao Paulo state “can perform GLP studies for national accreditations following national guidelines, and for import tolerances following OECD/EPA guidelines”. The company expects to receive its licence by March 2010.
