youPCR® Solution B - THCA is used to detect the Bt allele in the plant's DNA, which is associated with THC synthesis. For all youPCR® Solution B product orders, you will require Solution A, Solution C, and the corresponding positive control to run the assay successfully. Please see the recommended items below.
The youPCR® THCA Assay functions much like our current CBDA detection assay. Using a simple leaf punch, the test can detect whether the THCA synthase gene is present. A positive result will cause the pink testing solution to turn yellow, which means the plant has either one or two copies of the active THCA allele. That means the plant is either a Type I (all THCA) or Type II plant (50:50 CDBA:THCA).
When the THCA assay is used in conjunction with the CDBA assay you will be able to determine whether the plant is a Type I, Type II, Type III (CBDA dominant), or Type IV (CBGA).
All Medicinal Genomics reagents are manufactured in a facility certified to ISO 9001 standards. All lots of reagents are functionally tested in house and Certificates of Analysis (COAs) are available upon request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
