A Non-Invasive Approach Towards Invasive Species

Invasion of native ecosystems by non-native species is a widespread problem. Geotech recently received news that the Geotech Geopump is being used to inventory invasive species. Scientists from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service are identifying invasive species and species whose populations are threatened through eDNA testing. The Geopump is used to collect aquatic cells onto a filter media. Cells collected are run through a quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) which is able to detect DNA from just a couple cells in an environmental sample. The method is non-invasive, generally faster, and a more cost effective way to inventory and monitor fish and wildlife.

Environmental Tubing
You can be assured of the quality and conformity of Geotech's tubing

Geotech understands the vital role that tubing can have when used with environmental equipment. Whether it is for the integrity of groundwater sampling or maintaining exact pump performance for precision pumping.

Because of the special demands placed on tubing used in the environmental industry, Geotech offers only tubing that is manufactured and tested to meet those requirements. To insure that our tubing is contaminant–free, Geotech uses only virgin resins, never re-cycled materials. For added assurance, tubing is lab-tested for contaminates by independent laboratories.

Thicknesses, widths, and lengths are too numerous to list here, but you can find this information with our downloadable guides.
