DNA was extracted from the germinated hemp cotyledons or mature leaf and then tested by a multiplexed qPCR for specific DNA sequence targeting a portion of the Y Chromosome specific to male plants. An internal control is used to verify DNA extraction process. Each run contains a non-template negative control as well as a positive control for male associated DNA.
Minimum Sample Size Requirements:
One intact leaf from second set of true leaves
Collection Container Requirements:
Clean container such as sealable mylar bag or a screw top vial or test tube.
Turn Around Time:
2-5 business days from receipt of sample
Genetic Sex Test
When developing a new cultivar or growing out your mother stock, the worst thing that can happen is a male plant sneaking by undetected and pollinating the whole batch. Let us save you time and money and detect your males as soon as they sprout.
Add a genetic plant test after you’ve done a seed germination rate analysis to get a picture of seed stock sex ratios.
