Specialists in eDNA

Biodiversity analysis and monitoring

Large scale biodiversity data

By collecting small amounts of water, soil, or air from a filter, we can determine which individual species and species communities are present in a given environment like a lake, stream, bay, meadow or forest. The samples we collect are analyzed using high-tech genetic methods and provide information on occurrences of common, but also rare and harmful species. This allows us to generate enormous amounts of information (“big data”) about species occurrences. The samples can be collected in a short time over large geographical areas, with a precision that is several times higher than traditional methods.

We provide services to authorities, industry, NGOs and academia. The data can be used for habitat protection, EIAs, recipient control, mitigation follow-ups, diet analyses, research and species distribution maps.




With eDNA as a passion

MIX Research Sweden

At MIX Research Sweden we strive to always generate reliable data and high-quality results. Therefore, it is important for us to be at the forefront of eDNA research and we collaborate with the majority of leading actors to drive development forward. Our dedication to applying and driving the development of new technology makes us a reliable partner for companies, organizations and authorities that take sustainability and the environment seriously.

We operate internationally but with a core business in Sweden, see sample map with a selection of our sampling sites in Sweden.

eDNA-project in focus

Snow tracks - Polar bear

This exciting ongoing project will examine the most optimal methods to identify polar bear individuals, sex and kinship from snow. Here we use eDNA from polar bear’s footprints collected in in Alaska and elsewhere to identify polar bear individuals. During 2021 and 2022 new polar bear footprints were collected in the Arctic and processed in MIX laboratories in Sweden and at laboratories in LaJolla, USA.
