Identify and Eliminate Male Plants, Days After Germination

youPCR Gender Header

With the youPCR™ Gender Detection Assay, you can identify male cannabis and hemp plants before they leave the seedling tray. Get the males out of your grow early, and concentrate on getting the most from your females!

Save Time and Resources

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.

Keep Your Genetics In-House

There’s no need to risk violating federal law by sending plant material over state lines to labs who may intend to use your plant’s genetic data to compete with you. The youPCR platform can be performed by your staff at your facility.

*All youPCR chemicals and reagents are manufactured in a facility certified to ISO 9001 standards.

Savings Across Your Entire Operation

Early elimination of male cannabis or hemp plants allows cultivators to spend fewer resources on plants that won’t produce flower and could possibly pollinate an entire grow.
