Agrochemicals

With Study Directors and Researchers highly qualified and experienced in analytical investigations and agronomic applied to the control and monitoring of products, we have structure with high technology and quality in our services where we perform studies recognized by the Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and trials of Quality Control in accordance with NBR ISO/IEC 17025, for purposes of registration of Pesticides and Quality Control.

Working with advanced analytical techniques, the laboratory of pesticide residues reaches minimum values of MRLs (maximum residue limit), ensuring full traceability on GLP with a system monitored periodically by INMETRO. The Laboratory of Chemical Physics II, attests to the quality of raw materials, technical products and formulated in accordance with the regulatory agencies as required by ANVISA, MAPA and IBAMA, for registration and monitoring, using internationally recognized methods, such as OECD, ABNT , EPA and EEC. Thus, Plantec labs serves various sectors such as agribusiness, agro-chemical industries, food industries, supermarkets, farmers and consumers.

Through the ecotoxicological studies we monitor the effects of Pesticides to the environment and health. Through these studies, we guarantee the safe use of these products in order to care for the environment and quality of human health.

In order to know what services we are accredited, our ISO 17025 scope (CRL 0297) and our detailed BPL (BPL 0021) can be found on the INMETRO website.
