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

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

We are experts in eRNA and eDNA,
helping you understand presence of species or 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, and other vital watershed assets that face mounting challenges from climate change and pollution runoff. Much like addressing human health, the journey to ensuring aquatic ecosystem vitality and diversity starts with precise detection, diagnostics, and monitoring.
