Curious about what's living in your lake, river, wetland, or marine ecosystem? 

eDNA and eRNA can be used to detect and determine invasive, endangered, and microbiological aquatic species to support public and private sector efforts to manage biodiversity and aquatic ecosystem health. 

We are experts in environmental genomics,
helping you understand presence and activity of species and population dynamics in your aquatic ecosystem  

As a specialized environmental testing lab, EQO serves both public and private clients responsible for lakes, rivers, reservoirs, wetlands, estuaries and marine ecosystems that face mounting challenges from climate change, pollution, and environmental threats. Much like addressing human health, the journey to ensuring aquatic ecosystem vitality and diversity starts with genomics, transcriptomics, and bioinformatics
