NSF Int’l. Acquires Brazilian Lab Operation

NSF Int’l. has expanded its global role in public health and water and food safety across Latin America. The Ann Arbor, Mich., firm has acquired Bioensaios Analysis and Environmental Consulting Laboratory Ltd., based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. It will become known as NSF Bioensaios.

Founded in 1990, Bioensaios is a leading analytical laboratory that provides GLP (Good Laboratory Practices) studies and highly specialized testing services, including ecotoxicity, for a range of domestic and international companies as well as government agencies serving the water, food and agribusiness industries.

NSF Int’l. clients now have access to NSF Bioensaios' full set of services, including environmental evaluations for freshwater, seawater, effluent, soil and sediment; valuation reports on drinking water, food and feed safety; and studies for chemical products, drugs, materials and components.

“NSF International’s acquisition of Bioensaios significantly enhances both organizations. In addition, it expands NSF’s technical leadership in water, food safety, health sciences and sustainability in Latin America’s largest market while reinforcing NSF’s global commitment to technical excellence,” said NSF Pres./CEO Kevan Lawlor.

The acquisition complements NSF International’s existing operations in Peru, Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Costa Rica, and its recent acquisition of the Inassa Group, a Peruvian leader in testing for the water, seafood, pharmaceutical and mining industries.

NSF operates in 150 countries throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America.
