Charles River has been serving the testing and regulatory needs of the world’s agrochemical and biocidal companies for nearly half a century, collaborating in the development and registration of new and existing active ingredients and formulations with particular expertise in the design of tailored study programs to meet the regulatory needs of new products and their intended markets. We have full animal and laboratory facilities offering a wide range of required studies including chemistry, toxicology, metabolism, environmental studies, field trials, residue analysis, and human exposure studies.
Achieving development milestones is highly dependent on good communication, minimizing technical deviations, and satisfying regulatory expectations. Having a development partner with an integrated network of experienced scientific staff who have been troubleshooting unexpected toxicity or other issues as a team for many years will greatly benefit a product’s development timeline.
