Jonah Ventures has worked with scientists, researchers, citizens, and students across the U.S. to determine the source of  E. coli and fecal coliform bacteria.  By filtering water and then sequencing the DNA on the filters, we can tell you which organism is likely contaminating your water body.

Simply collect water in the syringe, push it through the filter, inject the preservative, and mail the filter to us in the supplied barcoded sample cup and return shipping envelope. We do all the DNA extraction and analysis and send you back the results in just a few days. Included with these kits is access to a convenient JonahDNA phone app, which can be used to enter meta-data.

This kit includes analysis for human, dog, cattle, sheep, pig, and poultry DNA. For additional species analysis, please contact us.

For multiple kits, please contact us on our website at where we offer discounts for large orders.
