Environmental Fate


The Scymaris Environmental Fate department has significant experience across a wide range of both regulatory environmental fate and biodegradation studies and with customized / bespoke study designs.  Purpose built controlled temperature (CT) rooms within a state of the art facility are capable of maintaining a wide range of constant temperatures (9-35°C) to accommodate stringent regulatory requirements. Studies can also be performed under controlled day/night and red-light facilities using radiolabelled (14C or 3H) or non-labelled compound.  Radiolabelled studies are supported by radio-HPLC, radio-TLC or radio-LCMS as required.
