Residue Chemistry and Field Trials

Residue Chemistry and Field Trials

At Symbiotic Research, management and employees have combined over 70 years of experience in conducting residue chemistry/bioanalytical studies from the former American Cyanamid Company-BASF. Our team is highly adept in residue chemistry related registration issues hence we offer better risk management when coordinating residue field trials, designing residue storage stability, residue method development/validation and residue analysis to help curb future registration dilemma. Our team/principal investigators and/or study directors have a long history of working directly with various field CRO'€™s throughout North America to conduct residue field trials and are highly skilled in coordinating sample shipments to analytical labs, sample process, stability study setup, method development or adaptation, method validation and GLP residue sample analysis.

Dr. Jerry Picard has worked as residue/metabolism group leader as well as registration manager at the former American Cyanamid and BASF. Dr. Picard also has served at the US-EPA task force for over a decade which makes him a highly valued member of our organization As the head of our Quality Assurance Group, Dr. Picard oversees all protocols and reports as part of his Quality Control (QC) assignment.

Dr. William Ray, formerly of Syngenta, has over 25 years of hands on metabolism experience, group leadership and residue chemistry experience. He actively handles GLP residue studies involving field and residue analytical.

Dr. Dan Safarpour brings over 20 years of residue/bioanalytical chemistry experience from the Altheimer laboratory, American Cyanamid/BASF and Taxolog Inc. He has recently accepted a part time employment position offered by a United Nation entity called International Atomic Energy Agency/FAO division (IAEA-FAO) and serves as an Expert Lecturer to IAEA/FAO traveling to FAO member nations and helps build residue chemistry labs globally to meet ISO and GLP guidelines.
