EnviroDNA is proud to be the first dedicated provider of environmental DNA services in Australia. Our eDNA services present an exiting opportunity for innovation in comparison with traditional survey techniques. We are committed to providing clients with bespoke solutions, tailored to address their objectives.
We use qPCR methods to detect traces of DNA that your target species of interest shed into the environment. We can detect both native and invasive flora and fauna. An ideal solution if you are looking to survey key species for priority or threatened species management, or efficiently detect those that are cryptic or low in abundance. We test water, soil, sediment and scat.
Our eDNA biodiversity assessments using metabarcoding are ideal for efficient, broad-scale biodiversity monitoring. We use next generation sequencing and comprehensive DNA reference libraries to undertake assessments that monitor for traces of DNA in environmental samples. EnviroDNA detects a range of taxonomic groups including amphibians, vertebrates, fish, decapods, invertebrates and macro invertebrates.
Our team use DNA-based solutions to accurately identify species, (the individual and often, its sex) from scat samples. EnviroDNA also conducts diet analysis studies using eDNA metabarcoding to produce comprehensive data sets that increase understanding of diet and health of species.
