Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis identifies organisms in an environment without direct observation. Samples are collected using a sampling kit, and DNA is extracted, sequenced, and analyzed to identify species. Just like on a crime scene. A report summarizes biodiversity, for example in a species list.
A Biodiversity Baseline
In order to stop the loss of our natural world, we need accurate and continuous measurement of life at a global scale. Using eDNA technology and the right incentives, an open biodiversity database is within reach. SimplexDNA pioneers the effort to include local communities, large corporates and governments to generate a biodiversity baseline layer. Find out about our global scaling plan:
Fish & Amphibian eDNA
Our well-established service for freshwater habitat monitoring. Starting from a filtered water sample, we carry out eDNA barcoding and bioinformatic analysis to generate a taxonomic report. We offer a rapid and tailored service from sampling to final data delivery. Please get in touch for a project consultation.
Tree of Life eDNA Service
A comprehensive snapshot of an ecosystem's biodiversity. Our most innovative service detects biodiversity across the evolutionary tree, from insects and fungi to bacteria, archaea, plants, birds, and mammals. We can identify thousands of species present in any ecosystem, allowing you to gain insight and manage the habitat. Please get in touch for a project consultation.
Custom eDNA service
Our technology is versatile and can easily be adapted to survey almost any habitat of choice. As a small expert lab, we can offer flexible solutions for your project needs, depending on your input material. Contact us to get an individualised quotation for DNA Metabarcoding, Library Preparation, Sequencing, Bioinformatics or additional reports.
We are proud to operate as a spin-off from ETH Zürich and in our own labs located in Winterthur. Multiple governmental agencies in Switzerland already rely on our services for invasive species monitoring and assessment of restoration and revitalization efforts in freshwater contexts.
