BSA Environmental Services has the capabilities to identify algal species and potential toxin producing cyanobacteria at the genetic level. By implementing DNA isolation protocols for plants and algae BSA is able to produce a pure product for DNA sequencing; this allows for proper identification down to an algal species. Using scientifically proven techniques BSA is able to determine if cyanobacteria has the potential to produce toxins (Microcystin, Cylindrospermopsin, Anatoxin-a) by identifying whether the toxin producing gene is present.
