What’s eDNA ? 



ID-GENE offers fast, sensitive and reliable environmental DNA tests to governmental agencies and the industry. Our DNA tests respond to the growing demand for new tools for environmental impact assessment that complement or replace the traditional morphology-based methods.

Bioassessment and Biomonitoring

ID-GENE uses the high-throughput DNA sequencing technology applied to selected groups of bio-indicators to assess the ecological quality of aquatic ecosystems

Biodiversity Inventory

ID-GENE uses the high-throughput DNA sequencing technology to identify the community of animals, plants and microbes present in aquatic ecosystems

Species Detection

ID-GENE uses the high-throughput DNA sequencing technology for detection of selected species in environmental DNA samples.

ID-GENE fournit des tests génétiques rapides, sensibles et fiables pour la bioévaluation environnementale et la biosurveillance

Notre ambition est de dynamiser le travail des agences environnementales, des bureaux d’étude et des autorités au service de la protection de l’environnement, ainsi que de l’industrie, par l’usage de technologies à la pointe de la recherche scientifique en matière d’évaluation d’impact sur l’environnement. Nous favorisons l’innovation scientifique dans un esprit d’entreprise afin de rendre la génomique environnementale accessible et de garantir l’amélioration à long terme de la gestion des ressources environnementales.

ID-GENE bietet eine schnelle, empfindliche und zuverlässige Gentests für biologische Umweltbewertung und Uberwachung
