EQO's solutions offer clients field support for collecting high volume eRNA and eDNA samples
LARGE-SCALE IN-SITU SOLUTIONS
The Calypso offers targeted and ultra-sensitive proprietary analytics which fosters rapid mitigation responses. This autonomous tool enables the early detection of live organisms at the microscopic single-molecule level, paving the way for successful mitigation.
The Osprey is a portable water sampling system that simplifies the high-volume collection of eRNA and eDNA samples - these insights can be used for rapid response and efficient risk mitigation.
Harnessing cutting-edge environmental DNA and RNA science, Osprey offers unparalleled accuracy, predictive insights, and actionable water quality data.
EQO's solutions offer our clients 3 types of support
We provide cutting-edge eRNA diagnostic solutions, including the crucial differentiation between live and dead organisms. With the Calypso's autonomous samplers, we ensure the automatic collection and preservation of biological material. Moreover, the Osprey facilitates wide-ranging site surveys of eRNA and eDNA for target species.
Our EQO scientists expertly extract, safeguard, catalogue, and scrutinize genetic data to discern the presence of living organisms and ascertain the infestation stage. We then arm you with actionable intelligence required to efficiently counter threats - such as a zebra mussel population, whether it's a nascent colony or an entrenched infestation.
EQO's robust collection systems can be semi-permanently positioned on-site or used as a versatile mobile survey system to track population activity. The successful management of invasive species, endangered species, and biosecurity threats demands real-time population activity data. This indispensable insight can only be gleaned through consistent and comprehensive monitoring, empowering treatment optimization, and quality control.
Once our in-field products secure samples, our laboratory services transform them into insightful data, equipping you for decisive action
FULL SUITE OF SERVICES
Whether your project requires conventional lab services such as veliger identification through cross-polarized microscopy, or advanced procedures including next-generation sequencing, metagenomics, or transcriptomics, we've got you covered. Our unique primer/probe design service provides flexibility to analyze genes and species that may be otherwise unavailable commercially. We've crafted custom probe sets for a range of needs, from detecting endangered, exotic, or invasive species and assessing metabolic activity, to tracking toxin expression or entire categories of toxic species. Essentially, if it's something you need to know about, we can help.
Are you concerned about microbial contamination in your lakes and rivers? Unsure about the source of these pathogens?
Through our partnership with Veracet, we offer the PhyloChip – an industry-leading tool for science-backed water analysis to bolster your water management strategies. The PhyloChip goes beyond just identifying the array of bacteria present in your water. It also locates the exact source of any fecal pollution, providing you with comprehensive insights to safeguard your water resources.
Some Success Stories
We saved a client over $2M in management costs by detecting an emerging population of an invasive species early and accurately, facilitating swift, preventative action to curb an infestation.
We verified the presence of an endangered species via DNA markers, yet the absence of an active population as indicated by RNA analysis, enabled a wetland remediation project to proceed without hindrance.
Continual monitoring and diagnostics have been successfully carried out for fisheries and vital infrastructures, ensuring their sustained health and functionality.
REPORTING THAT MATTERS
Take Effective Action
What's the value of information if it doesn't drive effective decision-making? Our on-site tools and state-of-the-art laboratory services deliver the insights necessary to make impactful choices. These insights come in the form of straightforward, timely reports, including recommended action steps for effective management. Plus, our dedicated scientific team is always just an email or a phone call away, ready to discuss results and strategize with you. Our support doesn't end with a single report - we're continually present, standing by to assist you and your water resources whenever needed.
