Microplankton Detection

Microplankton Detection

Microplankton, small photosynthetic organisms that drift with the currents in oceans and bodies of water, play a crucial role in marine ecosystems. These minute creatures are not only a vital food source for larger marine organisms but also contribute significantly to the global carbon cycle. The types of Microplankton in the lakes remained relatively constant over time. The sudden appearance of new species or changes in the relative abundance of different species may be due to changes in nutrient inputs, dominant fish types, new aquatic invasive species (such as zebra mussels or spiny water fleas), or toxic substances. However, microplankton populations are often threatened by various environmental factors, including pollution and climate change.

CD BioSciences is a leading provider of Microplankton detection services, utilizing cutting-edge technologies and scientific expertise to assess and monitor microplankton populations. Our advanced methodologies enable us to analyze and understand the behavior and spatial distribution of these organisms, offering valuable insights for environmental management, research, and conservation efforts.
