EPL BAS Midwest Analytical Lab is finalist for global AGROW award

EPL Bio Analytical Services (EPL BAS), based in Niantic/Harristown, Illinois, is once again a finalist for AGROW's annual Best Supporting Role Award.

“EPL Bio Analytical Services is so honored to be a finalist and attend the 2015 AGROW Awards in London this year," Michelle Smith, vice president of quality and compliance, said. "Since 1987, EPL BAS has provided globally recognized Good Laboratory Practice-compliant contract analytical laboratory support for crop protection regulatory submissions, and safety and nutrition evaluations of feed and food ingredients."

This award recognizes the company that has contributed most to the global crop protection industry through the provision of support services. Judges look for a company that offers outstanding client support, excellence in service, and a willingness to go the extra mile for its customers.

Competition this year was stiffer because there were more entries for the category. Finalists in other categories include Dow AgroSciences, Syngenta, Marrone Bio Innovations, DuPont Crop Protection and Bayer CropScience.

"In 2014, we dramatically expanded our ISO 17025 Scope of Accreditation and our molecular biology lab," Smith said. "We also continued to demonstrate leadership in the agricultural industry through the implementation of methods and processes for data generation and assessment in pollinator health studies in collaboration with others in the agricultural industry. EPL stands for Excellence, Passion and Leadership in the ag industry and being considered for this award adds to the sense of accomplishment and pride that our employees take in the services that we provide in agriculture."

EPL BAS serves the global agricultural industry by analyzing feed and food ingredients, organic products, genetically enhanced crops, bio-pesticides, plants, algae, plant protection agents and crop chemicals. Agrow Seed and Supply Ltd. is located in Saskatchewan, Canada.
