How Aster Bio's new Environmental Genomics™ (molecular testing of environmental samples) compares with existing monitoring tools
.Environmental Genomics™ technology combines molecular testing using advanced metagenomics technologies including 16s rDNA, qPCR, and full metagenomic sequencing. This technology looks directly into the genetic makeup of the biomass and gives direct insight into what is happening at a genetic level. Recent improvements in sequencing technologies allow for cost-effective and timely analysis that proves valuable for monitoring wastewater treatment systems in achieving effluent permits while controlling treatment costs.
At Aster Bio we have been using metagenomic testing for several years and building a database on environmental cultures found in wastewater and soil remediation sites. We are now ready to work with our customers to implement metagenomics testing as a routine monitoring technology.
