Track Down the Source of Aquatic Bacterial Contamination
JonahWater’s qPCR assays can provide the answers to your source tracking questions
Typical source tracking methods involve looking for host-based bacteria
JonahWater gets right to the source by detecting host DNA in your water body
Using Quantitative PCR, we can search a water sample for human, wildlife, and domestic animal DNA
We completed a source tracking pilot study in our own Boulder Creek in Boulder, Colorado. We observed spikes of human and livestock DNA based on site, which correlated to visual confirmation of these species.
Our standard analysis includes six species: human, poultry, sheep, pig, cattle, and dog
Other species may be added upon request
