Our team specialised on pollinator studies is still busy conducting residue trials and effect-studies on honey bees (Apis mellifera L.), solitary bees (Osmia sp.) or bumble bees (Bombus terrestris) under semi-field and field
conditions in Central and South Europe.
We have some space available for the full range of field and semi-field studies commencing in the next year.
...an extract from our diverse Ecotox-studies portfolio:
Diverse matrix samplings (e.g. for residue analysis or health control) can be included in all study types.
We are experts in pollinator testing...!

The world and we all are facing challenging times due to the SARS-CoV-2/Covid-19 pandemic. The situation is changing every day.
However, we do assure you that we are still working at a normal level, and that we are doing our best to maintain public health - while retaining our usual high quality and efficiency.
Almost all staff members have started working from home and we have intensified our in-house hygienic procedures and personal precautions in accordance with public guidance. We do not receive any visitors and keep business travels to an absolute minimum, and also refrain from using public transport. So far, we do not have anybody in the company in quarantine, let alone infected.
This is a highly dynamic situation and no one can predict the development over the coming weeks and months. Our uppermost goal is to keep our staff and their contacts safe, but also to continue working in the best possible way. We are fully committed to you and your projects, and we will keep you updated about further developments.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or via your known personal contacts.
Stay healthy and kind regards,
Christian Wolf and Torsten Hauck

MRLs in honey (SANTE/11956/2016 rev. 9):
tier3 solutions GmbH expanding honeybee services to Food and Dietary Safety
Honey has been considered as a food of animal origin (Annex I of Regulation 396/2005)and therefore, determination of the magnitude of pesticide residues and subsequent setting of maximum residues level (MRLs) in honey has to be considered in EU risk assessments.
Responding to the high demand for these MRL trials following the technical guideline published 14 Sep 2018, tier3 solutions GmbH has expanded its honeybee services. We offer semi-field studies for determining maximum residue levels (MRLs) in honey according to SANTE/11956/2016 rev. 9 in the central and the southern regulatory zone.
Our portfolio of testing and expertise is constantly growing. If you are interested in residue studies of other bee products or bee relevant matrices, contact us to discuss your requirements. We will find your solution.
tier3 solutions Workshop
On 18th September the tier3 solutions workshop „from the field to the risk assessment“ with more than 40 participants from European regulatory authorities, Industry and CROs took place at the tier3 premises in Leverkusen.
The entire higher tier tool box of field study types was presented, including practical demonstrations, and the adequate design and evaluation of generic studies (Focal species, PT/PD), residue trials and field effects studies was vividly discussed.
Participants exchanged opinions and experiences and looked at the way forward for refined birds and mammals risk assessments and the importance of realistic data from sound field trials.
Emphasized were also useful statistical tools and how to present complex study results in ‚digestible‘ reports ‘ready to use’ in the regulatory process.
We thank all participants for a very interesting and productive day!
