AGROCHEMICALS AND BIOPESTICIDES STUDIES
Quality and Accreditation
All agrochemical studies are recognized/monitored by CGCRE/INMETRO* according to Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
NSF Bioensaios is also ISO/IEC 17025 accredited by CGCRE/INMETRO* and holds additional accreditations from Ministries of Agriculture (MAPA) and Health (ANVISA), SENASA (Argentina) and SENAVE (Paraguay).

Five Batch Analysis
Evaluation of solvents and inorganics
Quantification and identification of active ingredient
Quantification and identification of impurities with concentration higher than 0.1% w/w
Quantification and identification of impurities specified as Toxicological Concern by Regulatory Agencies, such as FAO, IUPAC, INC-02* and others.
Isolation of impurities, acquisition and certification of analytical standards from the Technical Product.
