Microbial Pest Control Agent – MPCA

STILLMEADOW specializes in MPCA testing.  STILLMEADOW conducts a range of MPCA or biopesticide testing on a variety of different species. Testing is done via different routes including oral, dermal, IV or pulmonary to determine mammalian toxicity and pathogenicity.  Other testing is done to determine whether a MPCA may have an adverse effect on the environment.  We utilize avian species as well as honey bees for such testing. We also have non-target insect toxicity testing.  With our Aquatic Toxicology facility located at the same location but in a separate building we can also conduct environmental tests of MPCA’s using aquatic species.  Trust us with your product to conduct all your MPCA testing needs.
