Detect aquatic insects such as indicator groups of water beetles and EPT taxa (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, Trichoptera). Overcome the common challenges of taxonomic ID for species in morphologically intractable groups like the Chironomidae.
Biotic indices can be generated from macroinvertebrate eDNA data, but note that this is not yet accepted by regulators and therefore cannot be used for WFD assessments.
We also survey aquatic invertebrates using bulk samples. Learn more on our invertebrates page.
