Early Detection Saves Grows


The youPCR® Plant Screening Platform allows hemp and cannabis cultivators to screen plants for genetic traits and pathogens, while they are still in the seedling tray. Early screening can be used to prevent costly infestations and save valuable time and resources that would otherwise be spent on plants with undesirable traits, such as males.


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.


Botrytis cinerea
• Russet mites
• Powdery Mildew
• Fusarium sp
