Identify THCA-Rich Plants Earlier

With the youPCR™ THCA Marker Assay, you can identify cannabis plants that are genetically pre-disposed to produce a significant amount of THCA, before they leave the seedling tray. A plant that tests positive for the youPCR™ THCA Marker Assay has either one or two copies of the active THCA allele, meaning it is either a Type I plant (all THCA) or Type II plant (50:50 CBDA:THCA), effectively ruling out a Type III plant (all CBDA).


Save Time and Resources

Virtually eliminate time and resources transplanting, watering, and monitoring plants that will ultimately have an undesirable cannabinoid profile. With the youPCR THCA Marker test, you can test plants just one week after germination.

Accelerate Your Breeding Program

With early feedback on your plants’ genetics, you can quickly identify the group of plants you want to breed within to produce the desired cannabinoid profile.

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

Savings Across Your Entire Operation

Early identification and elimination of cannabis plants that do not have the desired cannabinoid profile saves cultivators time and resources that would otherwise be spent bringing them to harvest.

Cut Electricity Bill

Lower Irrigation Cost

Reduce Square Footage

Curtail Labor

Flexible and Scalable

Since all current and future youPCR tests can be run on either a 8-well miniPCR thermocycler or a standard 96-well thermocycler your initial up-front equipment purchase can be used for multiple applications. Customers should consider volume when choosing which equipment solution will work in their instance. Contact a Medicinal Genomics representative who can help determine the right solution for your situation.


MiniPCR Thermocycler

Best for Small Grows

Test 6 Samples Per Instrument Run
