French CROs Staphyt and Ambrosi to merge
French contract research company Staphyt's (Inchy-en-Artois) and French CRO Ambrosi Scientific Consulting (ASC - Chaintré) are to undergo a “strategic merger” this month. ASC claims expertise in plant protection regulations, fertilisers and growing media, biocides and chemicals. The synergy between the companies will enable them to provide an enhanced regulation service at the European level, Staphyt says. The new ASC-Staphyt “regulatory hub” will consist of a team of 35 experts. “This integration extends Staphyt’s skill area towards biocides thanks to an expert team recognised all across Europe,” says Staphyt group general manager Olivier Marchioro.
