Original thinking…applied to serve the agro-chem and veterinary medicines industries

In 2018 we designed and built Europes first full flow-through Mesocosm outdoor laboratory. It will provide our partners with a facility that is a realistic, but closely controlled, facsimile of edge-of-field surface waters that can be exposed to novel products in a real-world scenario to ensure the safety of aquatic habitats and the entire local eco-system.

This unique facility represents a leap forward in the support of Higher Tier Risk Assessments. The new E-Flows mesocosm provides a unique test-bed to provide robust data to demonstrate efficacy and safety. This ground breaking project for the UK Crop Health & Protection's (CHAP) Centre was supported by Innovate UK and developed, designed, managed & operated by Fera.
