Where May We Manage Trials For You ?

C.  Large Project Management
In a single year, we initiated 525 field trials and had an additional 125 trials ongoing as carryover from the previous year. In addition, we have simultaneously managed programs which included 37 crop residue and processing studies for the malathion task force and 28 crop residue, processing, soil dissipation, and aquatic dissipation studies for the 2, 4-D and phenoxy task forces with each study containing multiple trials. In addition, we initiated 9 large import tolerance studies across 10 countries in North America, South America, Latin America, and Europe in a single year.

No laboratory with some study management people or study management firm, other than American Ag, has ever implemented projects of this size.

D.  Analytical Phase Management
Of the 1,000+ studies managed by American Ag over the last 22 years, we have been the study director approximately 50% of the time. Therefore, for approximately 500 studies, we have managed the laboratory issues of method development (where appropriate), method validation, storage stability, and residue analysis.

American Ag has direct experience with all the major labs in the U.S. and Europe. We have proven that we can function as study director utilizing any analytical lab of your choice for analysis.

E.  Processing Laboratories
EPA and OECD require processing studies and processing fraction analysis for those crops from which edible processed fractions are produced. Given the number of crop residue studies American Ag has managed, it goes without saying that we have extensive processing study management experience under GLP with key processing facilities in the U.S. and Europe.
