youPCR® Plant Screening
Identify and Eliminate Male Plants - Virtually eliminate time and resources transplanting, watering, and monitoring male plants that will never produce flower. With the youPCR Gender Detection test, you can identify and eliminate male plants just one week after germination, giving you more time to care for your productive females and optimize your operation.
Identify Cannabinoid Ratios - Get early feedback on your efforts to breed strains with specific cannabinoid ratios. The youPCR CBDA Marker and youPCR THCA Marker tests can determine if a plant has the genes needed to produce CBDA and/or THCA, just one week after germination. This will help you better select plants with desirable traits that will be used in subsequent crosses.
Protect Your Grow from Pathogens and Pests - The youPCR Platform can identify plants infected with powdery mildew, russet mites, or botrytis before they show visual symptoms. Use youPCR to screen your incoming clones to make sure you are not introducing infected plants to your grow, and continue to screen plants throughout their life so you can keep pathogens in check.
