PhycoTech has processed more than 41,500 samples from all over North America. We've also processed samples from other continents, including Antarctica. Ann St. Amand, Ph.D. is an expert taxonomist with over 32 years of experience identifying algae and zooplankton, and is the only individual responsible for algal & zooplankton analysis. We also use only expert taxonomists for macroinvertebrate analyses. This provides our customers with a guarantee of accuracy and consistency for multiple year projects, along with peace of mind, avoiding inconsistencies often found with student or inexperienced technician analysis.
