Environmental Genetic Testing 

Gene-Trac® is a tool used by site managers to assess, optimize and monitor bioremediation and other microbial processes. To effectively understand biodegradation of contaminants such as chlorinated solvents, petroleum hydrocarbons, 1,4-dioxane, nitrogen compounds, and metals, it is critical to know which microorganisms and functional genes are present.

Gene-Trac uses quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) to accurately enumerate critical microbial targets in many matrices including soil, sediment, groundwater, mine tailings, and wastewater. Gene-Trac testing gives environmental professionals the confidence they need to make critical site management decisions and provides compelling evidence of bioremediation success.
