The clean energy revolution must deliver for nature too

With global energy demand set to increase 30% by 2040, mitigating biodiversity impacts has never been more important.

Environmental DNA (eDNA) provides biodiversity data in unprecedented detail to inform robust decision-making. Feeding into all stages of the mitigation hierarchy, this helps track progress towards goals such as Net Positive Impact or No Net Loss of biodiversity and ensure the best outcomes for nature.  Samples collected by non-specialist on-site personnel enable cost-efficient year-round monitoring.

Use our aquatic eDNA kits to detect and monitor rare, endangered and invasive species in rivers, lakes and oceans. Data can also highlight ecosystem effects including loss of connectivity in rivers and the effectiveness of mitigation solutions such as fish passes.

Unlock insights from insect and soil communities to track impacts in terrestrial habitats.

Include DNA-based biodiversity monitoring in your ecological survey design with NatureMetrics

DNA-based monitoring with NatureMetrics

NatureMetrics makes eDNA surveys easy. Our end-to-end service includes easy-to-use sampling kits, logistics support, laboratory analysis and data processing. We provide professional reports and support with interpretation and data analysis where required.

Our expert team can also help you design an eDNA sampling campaign to suit your project’s location and needs, and we can provide training for your staff and contractors, either online, in person or on-site – get in touch to find out more.

Additional services, such as ecological statistics and mapping, may be added at any time during the project. We can work with you to understand how to use our data to feed into your wider environmental strategy.

Stand at the forefront of innovation and standardisation in detecting, monitoring and managing biodiversity with NatureMetrics’ iDNAture sampling kits.

Our kits are optimised for use by non-experts (such that anyone can collect a quality sample) and contain all you need to begin sampling right away.

Samples you can send to our labs for analysis include:

eDNA from water
DNA from soils and sediments

Our aquatic eDNA surveys unlock a wealth of data on aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity across a wide variety of ecosystems – from rivers, streams, and lakes to coastal habitats and the open ocean.

Soil and sediment analyses let us profile the small organisms and microbes that are vital for maintaining healthy, functioning ecosystems.

We take the pain out of taxonomic identification of insects and other invertebrates by letting the DNA sequencer do the work. Invertebrates are abundant and diverse, making them excellent indicators of ecological change.

Why NatureMetrics?

Ease of use – Our kits are tried and tested by diverse groups across the world.

Collect and submit field data on-the-go with the NatureMetrics Sampling App.

Our in-house logistics team help get your samples to the lab in compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.

Our highly specialised team includes world-leading eDNA experts.

Compliant with all standards and best practice guidance for eDNA.

We take the time to troubleshoot difficult DNA samples to ensure you get the best possible results.

Specialist eDNA facilities with robust quality control procedures at every stage of the process.
