Our Expertise: Dry Season Lab
At SummitWest, we excel in our commitment to dry season fairy shrimp work. Our cutting-edge laboratory, located in Bend, Oregon, is meticulously designed to streamline soil processing while eliminating any risk of cross-contamination.
The significance of our approach lies in our unwavering commitment to precision. Fairy shrimp cysts have the potential to become airborne, and any lapses in care, attention to detail, or substandard laboratory practices can compromise the reliability of results.
Our lab boasts a state-of-the-art, 100% customized soil fines separator, tailor-made depth sieves, and a customized filtration system that sets us apart from the rest. Additionally, our culturing bench features sterile glass beakers equipped with air stone bubblers, ensuring a controlled environment that minimizes the likelihood of algal growth, water evaporation, and significant fluctuations in aquatic conditions during the maturation of the shrimp.
