SDI Partners with EQO to Help Control Aquatic Invasive Species Infestations
SDI co-developed the Osprey Survey System (O.S.S.) for EQO. Customers can rent the OSS for survey and monitoring of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) directly from EQO on a subscription service basis.
EQO is the leader in whole ecosystem bio-monitoring and AIS early-stage detection leveraging breakthrough environmental RNA biotechnologies. EQO offers convenient Science-as-a-Service (SaaS) agreements.
Introducing the O.S.S.
Osprey Survey System
Protect Your Water Resources from Destructive Aquatic Invasive Species
With breakthrough environmental DNA + RNA scientific advances delivering the highest accuracy, predictive results and actionable information.
EQO Dx O.S.S. engineered by SDI, is the first sample collection system enabling early-stage detection and prevention of Aquatic Invasive Species.
EQO detects genetic materials at the single molecule level in any body of water.
The spread of AIS with identification for rapid response to avoid costly mitigation and treatment.
Detect genetic signals + intersect genetic messages at the molecule level before it is too late to prevent or control infestation.
After EQO's Initial Risk Assessment, track AIS population to stay ahead of the problem.
Detect Live vs Dead Organisms
EQO Dx proprietary technology captures and preserves traces of genetic materials of live organisms of interest.
EQO OSS ships with user-friendly sampling instructions and return shipping labels. Osprey is perfect for multiple geo-spatial survey sites.
Diagnostics Report with Actionable Information
EQO provides clients with a dashboard and full report to show stages of infestation and recommendation for appropriate action.
Early Stage Infestation Detected
Estimated $2 Million Saved by Avoiding Infestation
Samples analyzed for eRNA associated with a living and active zebra mussel populations showed mild positive signal. These results indicate an early stage infestation. Early response intervention was recommended and executed. This water body is no longer infested and continues to be monitored to keep it that way.
