Staphyt acquires Italian CRO Agrobiocontrol
French contract research organisation (CRO) Staphyt (Inchy-en-Artois) has acquired Italian CRO Agrobiocontrol (Aprilia). The Italian company is GEP and GLP accredited. The potential market for experimentation is considerable in Italy and the move reinforces Staphyt’s position in southern Europe, the company says. Staphyt Italy will be operational in two locations: one in the Latina region (between Rome and Naples); and the other in the north of Italy (Verona area). From spring 2015, the company will be able to establish trials in all the main agricultural and climatic areas of Italy.
