Plant Metabolism Studies

Plant metabolism studies at Charles River involve the application of the radiolabeled test item (in the proposed commercial formulation) according to the intended use pattern and method. Samples are harvested at intervals between application and maturity to provide intermediate and final analysis points for information on the metabolic pathway and changes in residue levels.

We can establish optimum growing conditions for crop species for which our clients may have a future requirement. This exploratory work ensures the integrity of the definitive study at no extra cost or obligation to the client.
