Did you spot our NatureMetrics filter kit in the May edition of BBC Wildlife Magazine?
Whether you’re a citizen scientist or an ecologist doing field surveys, anybody can discover their local biodiversity with NatureMetrics. As you’ll see in the article, it’s as simple as collecting and filtering a water sample and sending it to our NatureMetrics labs where we’ll do the rest.
- You collect and filter a water sample using our easy-to-use filter kit.
- Send your sample to the lab where we’ll extract the DNA.
- We amplify the DNA sequences in your sample to make lots of copies, then we’ll match them to known DNA sequences.
- We’ll send you a report showing you all the taxa that you’ve detected in your sample.
We’re thrilled to have worked with the BBC team on this article, which shows just how important eDNA methods are for revolutionising the future of conservation and biodiversity monitoring.
