Environmental Testing
Pathogen Detection

Reliably Sensitive Pathogen Detection

Bacteria, viruses, and parasites are capable of causing serious illness or infection and can be introduced into the body through high-traffic places such as public lakes, rivers, and beaches. Whether these bodies of water were contaminated by storm drain runoff, sewage spills, or even local farms, Quantabio’s advanced molecular biology reagents can help detect spikes in the level of contaminating organisms found in these natural environments.

Quantabio’s ToughMix chemistries are trusted by government testing agencies and private laboratories around the world for academic research and conservational studies where environmental DNA (eDNA) is used to identify the population health of various species.
