Regular water samples are captured on site and passed through a special filter, which traps the DNA. This is then sequenced back in the lab and a report produced, including trending of data.

In more detail
Biodiversity awareness is critical to mining sustainably. In order to champion environmental stewardship, the mining industry must understand how its operations affect the surrounding wildlife so that companies can strive towards biodiversity conservation. This is why conducting powerful, reliable surveys is so crucial.
This solution will save you time, money and effort on biodiversity management. Unlike traditional surveys, which are inefficient and often return limited data, this solution uses eDNA sampling and bioinformatics analysis to provide you with powerful, reliable data at unprecedented scales.
