The laboratory analyses the taxonomic composition and biomass of aquatic organisms in lakes and streams.
The laboratory is accredited by SWEDAC since 1995 for biological sampling and analyzes in lakes and streams. We have skilled taxonomists with a long experience on environmental monitoring and assessments of lakes and streams. We analyze phyto- and zooplankton, periphyton (epiphytic diatoms), macrophytes, and benthic fauna. Additionally, we also perform electric fishing in streams. Furthermore, we arrange courses/workshops within the frame of the expertise at the laboratory. We also participate in, and occasionally set up, international intercalibrations.
