Targeted Species Detection
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 and Diet Analysis
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 do more than collect and analyse environmental samples. Our data solutions using cutting edge-tools help summarise, analyse, and visualise eDNA data to get the most value out of results.
Traditional Owner Program
Providing Traditional Owners, as the waterway managers and environmental water holders on Country, with the skills to undertake eDNA water sampling. Gain eDNA sampling and data interpretation skills to understand species distributions and inform management and decision making on Country.
Why choose eDNA?
Detect species earlier to allow for more effective and efficient management outcomes
Increase sensitivity of monitoring by detecting species that are low in abundance
Detect species in areas where there may be logistical limitations for traditional methods
Increase ability to detect species that are difficult to by nature detect e.g., shy or cryptic species
Apply broad scale surveying, as well as gathering extraordinary levels of biodiversity data
Reduce costs of detection and monitoring (e.g., no special permits or highly trained people are required for eDNA sampling)
eDNA sampling for species can be conducted in rain, hail or shine!
