MicroBlitz is a local University of Western Australia (UWA) project with a globally significant agenda. With an army of citizen scientists across Western Australia conducting in-the-field soil sampling, this unique environmental survey and research project – led by Professor Andrew Whiteley and Professor Barry Marshall – will revolutionise the way we think about sustainability, the environment and how it links to our health.

Want to get your hands dirty? Here’s how.

  • Make sure you’re registered. Before you place a request for a kit you will need to register as a MicroBlitzer via the smartphone app. Download the iOS or Android app now.
  • Check out the WA Microbe Map. Find out if the area you intend to sample has already been sampled intensively, at this stage of the project we don’t want samples to be less than 100 km from any existing sample already taken.
  • Request your kits. Contact us via email to request your kit and let us know when and where you will be taking samples. Once we have established if you have chosen a valid sample site we will be in touch and we will send out your kits ASAP.
