NGS in environmental monitoring

DNA plays a key role in environmental monitoring

DNA can be read using sequencing technologies. Based on the DNA sequence, we can identify the organisms it belongs to

This is particularly useful to identify microorganisms from a complex sample, for instance, contaminated groundwater

Using NGS, or Next Generation Sequencing, it is possible to find out the bacterial community of a sample by analyzing the DNA contained in it

At Orvion, we apply NGS on environmental samples and laboratory tests to find out how bacterial communities are responding to environmental changes and the presence of contaminants.
This allows us to prevent health hazards and provide sustainable solutions for a safe and clean environment.
