The eDNA Sampler Backpack is the world's first purpose-built, aquatic eDNA sampling system.
This innovative system is the first to monitor and regulate flow and pressure across your filter to provide maximum DNA yield per volume of water.
Other methods use gravity or non-regulated pressure across the filter. These methods result in clogged filters and lost DNA. Now, for the first time, eDNA sampling can be easily standardized with this smart pump. The flow sensor monitors the rate the water is pumped to minimize clogging from suspended sediments. Meanwhile, the pressure sensor ensures that the cells are captured but not destroyed. Ultimately, you get standardized results that are consistent and repeatable.
On Point Sampling
With the eDNA Sampler contaminated samples are a thing of the past.
Previous methods often require you to enter the water, leading to increased chance of introducing material from other locations into your sample.
The carbon fiber telescoping sample pole that extends up to 12 feet and includes a support bipod, eliminates contact with the aquatic environment. This ensures sample integrity.
You'll gain the confidence that all DNA material in your sample originated from your sample site.
The portability of the eDNA Sampler allows for unique capabilities.
Walk and filter water at the same time to capture a sample over an entire transect.
Pack and Go
Fully integrated water tight control housing, pump, and storage dry-bags mean you put the backpack on and get in the field without the need to assemble a hodgepodge of equipment.
Less Waste and No Sterilization
The single-use filter packs are extended to the end of the sample pole, meaning all the other parts of the system are reusable and don't require sterilization.
Single-Use Filter Packs
Typical eDNA filtering utilizes gravity and/or a uniform cylinder shape. Both of these design flaws contribute to increased clogging of the filter with sediment and non-target particulates. The specially engineered cone on our eDNA filter housing optimizes the capture of cellular material and reduces the capture of unwanted materials.Learn More
