General toxicology studies establish the potential of your crop protection product to cause adverse health effects after either single or repeated exposure. The specific adverse effects and their level of severity can vary depending on multiple factors like the mechanism causing toxicity, chemical bioavailability, and the routes and amount of product a person or animal is exposed to. General toxicology studies need to address all these factors and may involve both acute single-dose studies or repeat-dose chronic and subchronic studies looking at a range of toxicity endpoints.
General toxicity endpoints are required by all regulators of agrochemical but different regulators may have different standards and preferred methodologies. You must ensure you perform the right studies, in the right way and in an efficient and strategic manner to maximize outputs. What basic studies are required? What routes of administration are needed? What test species is most appropriate?
The dedicated general toxicology team have extensive expertise in designing, planning and performing general toxicology studies for agrochemicals. The team includes toxicologists, biologists, analytical chemists and animal technicians who work collaboratively to optimize study design and performance. From partnering with you strategically to designing a full testing program to performing single specialist studies, we can help you achieve your goals.
Our extensive facilities, flexible capacity and cutting-edge laboratories mean we can conduct all general toxicology studies for your agrochemical and deliver high-quality results in a timely manner.
Multiple test species are available for toxicology testing with high levels of animal welfare. Labcorp has expertise in optimizing administration to reduce dose variability. For rodents that means gavage or dietary administration and for dogs, capsule or gavage. Labcorp also has expertise in dermal and inhalation test substance delivery.
Labcorp has established processes in place to run a battery of general toxicology studies for agrochemicals. These include standard endpoints as well as unique endpoints relevant to your agrochemical.
