Identifying and counting zooplankton

Our strength lies in our integrated approach from initial field sampling through to analysis, and utilising zooplankton monitoring in conjunction with water quality, macroinvertebrate or phytoplankton to provide comprehensive solutions.

This ecosystems-based approach allows us to recommend management strategies that are direct and targeted. Close collaboration with our field monitoring and consultancy departments ensures we can design the whole process from start to finish, maximising the value of our data and ensuring reliability for our clients.

Our analysts undergo rigorous training to ensure a high standard of analysis. Our capacity for fast turnaround and high accuracy is also aided by a rigorously tried-and-tested scientific methodology and our suite of professional microscopes.

We work with a wide range of organisations including the Environment Agency, local authorities, water companies, canal and river trusts and environmental consultancies.
