Aster Bio's Environmental Genomics™ - DNA based monitoring for environmental samples has officially launched
Over the past several years, Aster Bio has used advanced DNA testing including metagenomics, 16s rRNA and qPCR. We have found the technologies have given better information than traditional microbiological testing (plate counts, stains, etc) for many of our daily activities. That left us wondering, could Aster Bio reduce both the time and cost of running molecular (DNA) tests. Through over three years of work, we have reached a point where molecular testing is now a practical monitoring and troubleshooting tool for wastewater operators. Here is how we have used Environmental Genomics™ testing results:
