Smithers Viscient expands in US
The US-based contract research company, Smithers Viscient (Wareham, Massachusetts), is expanding its North American operations at two locations in the US. An 11,500 sq ft (1,068 m2) laboratory expansion at its Wareham site is aimed at increasing the capacity of its pesticide environmental fate and ecotoxicology services. The expansion is due for completion this year, with further renovations forthcoming, the company points out. The establishment of operations in Fresno, California will allow further expansion of field trials for higher-tiered pollinator services and residue trials.
