FOR WHAT ORGANISMS DO YOU NEED TESTING?
Created by scientists from the Biodiversity Institute at University of Guelph, Precision Biomonitoring offers point-of-need environmental DNA (eDNA) tools and services for the identification of invasive, keystone and at-risk species in aquatic and other systems. Our surveys give environmental consultants, biologists and managers more definitive species identification, more rapidly and for less money than the traditional methods, without having to send samples to a central lab!
Precision Biomonitoring develops ground breaking eDNA field technology. This newly emerging science allows extremely small traces of DNA—traces shed by organisms through bodily fluids, skin cells, or other ecretions—to be detected in water samples without having to directly collec the organisms themselves. This rapid and sensitive tool provides confirmation of target species DNA in the field, as opposed to lengthy delays waiting for results from a lab. Our system allows for real-time upload of field results to a secure server, which provides you with easy access to the information anywhere and anytime.
We have conducted eDNA surveys for tens of species. Our survey methods give you reliable results using a fraction fo the time and effort.
