Companies and industries that explore natural resources are required to perform environmental impact studies before they license their activities. After that, they are also required to monitor environmental impacts. Bio Bureau’s methodology to identify biodiversity solves the bottleneck in species identification reducing up to 20-fold identification time.
A pilot project in a sedimentary basin 100.000 km2 large, has shown that we can reduce analysis time of 3000 samples from 5 years to 3 months, at a cost competitive with traditional methods. O&G operators can reach ‘first oil’ faster and add value to their strategic projects, while other industries with sustainability and Environmental Conservation projects, can benefit from speed accuracy and scalability of DNA analysis previously possible only in academia.
