eDNA Laboratory Analysis

Environmental DNA (eDNA) is simply DNA that is present in the environment. It originates from sloughed off cells of organisms present in the area. We analyse this DNA to verify the presence or absence of a species in that system. eDNA degrades over time so it provides a snapshot of what organisms are present currently or very recently

Quality and attention to detail is essential, especially when working with such sensitive eDNA methods. SureScreen is ISO9001 accredited and we are currently building up our casefile for external accreditation to ISO17025 for all eDNA work carried out.

Our laboratory handles the DNA work in-house alongside our other forensic work. We also have partnerships with other laboratories such as The University of Derby and QuantuMDx UK, to verify results and sensitivities. Some of our other collaborative projects include the RESPOC system for rapid diagnosis of respiratory diseases and the DNA-based Q-CANCER project developing a fast-processing genetic sequencer for cancer biopsy samples. We use PCR, qPCR and genetic sequencing for a range of disease states.
