All living things leave traces of their DNA in the environment (eDNA). We use this to identify individual species from small samples of soil, sediment, water and air.
eDNA provides an unrivalled picture of a site’s biodiversity. It provides the most comprehensive view available of the full spectrum of life, no matter how hard-to-detect.
Find hard to detect species
Discover rare, elusive and cryptic species - even if you can’t see them.
Collect more data with fewer samples
Identify hundreds of species from a simple sample. (And take a sample in just 10 minutes).
Increase accuracy and consistency
Overcome errors associated with visual identification and generate repeatable results.
Improve health and safety
Reduce health and safety concerns by minimising the time staff spend in the field.
