Analysis of biodiversity with environmental DNA
Measurement of environmental DNA (e-DNA) for mapping and quantification of biodiversity in water is increasingly being used.
Monitoring diversity with eDNA does not require technical or academic ressources in the field. The method is not sensitive to specific weather conditions to be present. The new approach with DNA detection from a water sample may provide usefull supplement or alternative for authorities, land owners and commercial industries.
Fresh water e-DNA analysis
Amphi Consults now offers e-DNA analysis for a wide range of species living in fresh water.
Amphi Consult has in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen developed a series of assays for measuring e-DNA from a wide range of species from freshwater. The species in focus for the assays are macroorganisms like fishes, insects and amphibians, that are either endangered, protected or commercially interesting.
Marine water e-DNA analysis
Amphi Consults also offers e-DNA analysis for a range of species living in marine waters.
Amphi Consult has in cooperation with the University of Copenhagen developed species specific eDNA assays for a range of species from marine waters.
Sample and shipping kit
Amphi Consults provides an e-DNA sample and shipping kit for non-concentrated samples and concentrated samples. For concentrated samples a shipping kit is available for either manual filtration or pressure assisted filtration in combination with the Amphiltrator.
Amphiltrator (concentration of DNA from water samples)
The amphiltrator makes it easy to concentrate DNA from large water samples (2 L) from freshwater or marine water.
