Fighting Crayfish Plague Using Biomeme and eDNA

 Researchers at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute in collaboration with Swedish colleagues and local authorities used the Biomeme two3 to investigate the crayfish plague using environmental DNA (eDNA).

To learn more about eDNA read Biomeme's Guide to Environmental DNA.

Are you interested in running your own real-time PCR test using the Biomeme platform? Check out our full suite of end-to-end real-time PCR products - from DNA and RNA purification to running a test at the point of sample on a hand-held PCR thermocycler to finally analyzing your real-time PCR test results - here.

"Porting our assay over to the Biomeme platform was surprisingly easy. We tested out their sample prep technology with our samples, tried out their bulk lyophilized master mix with our primers and probes, compared their mobile thermocycler to our lab-bound machine, and after various tests with consistent results, decided to kit our assay into their Go-Strips to aid our field research."
