Investment in new personnel, capabilities and buildings at SGS’s GLP Multilab in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray delivers a broader range of agriculture analyses.

Building on more than 20 years experience and expertise at this facility, SGS has invested to create extra capacity and ensure that our clients are able to meet all their regulatory responsibilities efficiently and effectively on a single site.

During 2015, we have invested in new personnel, new buildings – a sample reception area, homogenisation lab, and freezer storage capacity – as well as new, dedicated LC-MS/MS equipment at Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray. At the same time, internal procedures have been optimised to deliver faster, more targeted support for our clients.

GLP accredited since 1993 and having successfully completed its 2015 audit, experts at this facility can conduct a range of studies, including:

  • Residue analysis (method development and validation studies, storage stability studies and analytical phases in crop and in environmental matrices)
  • Ecotoxicology (effect of chemicals on environmental organisms studies, bioaccumulation and biodegradation studies)
  • Physical chemical testing (environmental behaviour studies, physical and chemical properties studies and on adjuvants, active ingredients or products including and five batches studies and impurity profiling)

SGS Multilab can deliver a broad range of analytical techniques, such as GC-MS, HS-GC-MS, GC-MS/MS, LC-MS/ MS, CI, UV, IR, ICP-AES, and ICP-MS, among others.

Developing the GLP department of our Multilab, strengthens our analytical network and enables us to offer clients more analyses with standardised international approach. It builds on the success of the well-established SGS Institut Fresenius operation in Germany, and enables SGS to further leverage the skills and expertise across its laboratory network to ensure that we always deliver the most appropriate solution, wherever our clients are based.

With upgraded facilities and enhanced staff expertise, SGS Multilab at Saint- Etienne-du-Rouvray is now able to offer its clients extra capacity and the full-range of global agricultural analysis packages.
