There is a pressing need for more information on the health and biodiversity status of our aquatic environments. To acquire this knowledge, monitoring of species and populations is essential to obtain reliable distribution patterns in space and time.

eDNA Field Pump - An on the go field tool for reliable and transportable water monitoring.

However, sampling is expensive and poses many resourcing, safety and logistical challenges.

We have developed an innovative method to extract DNA directly from a water sample without having to catch the target organism.

This eDNA Pump makes field sampling affordable to researchers, managers and citizen-scientists alike with a more reliable and cost-effective approach for environmental monitoring of aquatic resources.
