We use cutting-edge environmental DNA (eDNA) technology for wildlife detection and monitoring. At the forefront of research and application in Australia, we provideeDNA services that innovate how our clients gather wildlife and biodiversity data, helping to protect our fragile biodiversity.
Surveying for oysters often presents a variety of challenges for efficiently obtaining data. A new study uses eDNA to fill this knowledge gap based on a cost-effective approach that overcomes expensive and time-consuming survey techniques.
Every living creature leaves traces of DNA in the environment through skin cells, hair, scales and other bodily secretion. This is known as environmental DNA - nature's fingerprint! At EnviroDNA, it is our job to find it. By collecting an environmental sample, such as water, soil or scats, we can trace native wildlife, pests and introduced species. eDNA is an innovative, sensitive and cost-effective technique that is ready to be added to your surveying toolkit.
Target species assessments using qPCR methods detect traces of DNA that species of interest shed into the environment. This is an ideal solution if you are looking to survey species for priority or threatened species management, or efficiently detect species that are cryptic or low in abundance.
Biodiversity assessments using eDNA metabarcoding are ideal for efficient, broad-scale biodiversity monitoring. Using next generation sequencing and comprehensive DNA reference libraries we deliver high-quality detection data for a range of taxonomic groups including amphibians, vertebrates, fish, decapods, invertebrates and macro invertebrates.
Scat analysis techniques using DNA can help accurately identify species, the individual and often, its sex. Using eDNA metabarcoding, we can also perform diet analysis studies that produce powerful insights into the diet and health of species.
We work with government, consultancies, Traditional Owner organisations, not-for-profit, industry, research and private organisations across Australia and abroad. We help organisations innovate how they gather data on wildlife and biodiversity, so they can make improved environmental management decisions. Using eDNA services, our clients are detecting native and invasive species with greater ease and sensitivity, as well as generating broad scale biodiversity data that was not previously possible.
