No more guesswork. Just correct results.
Phylos has tested tens of thousands of seedling samples without a single false call. This is because our scientists have implemented multi-step cross checks to ensure every stage of the testing process meets our rigorous protocol.
We extract DNA from samples and use a technique called real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) to identify the Y сhromosome—because just like in humans, only male plants have a Y chromosome.
How it Works
Super convenient — and completely legal
Order sample collection kits online and send samples directly to our lab–without ever leaving your grow. The Phylos Plant Sex Test was carefully designed to ensure your submission follows federal law when mailed from legal states via USPS, UPS and FedEX.
“We’ve used the Phylos Sex Test on a number of our seedlings with impressive results. Phylos is prompt, professional and 100% accurate. Our grow is fairly small, so we can’t afford to flower a plant if we’re not certain that it’s female. Thanks to Phylos, we’ve been able to crack many more seeds than we would have otherwise, giving us access to significantly broader genetic diversity.”
– Matt Walstatter, Owner/CEO
“If time is money, Phylos Bioscience’s Sex Test is priceless. The ability to cull males in a matter of days not months is a game changer to say the least!”
– Jerry Whiting, Owner
“These tests were big savers of space, time, and, bottom line: money. They made starting from regular seed much easier than I previously thought. You can have your seeds sexed before transplanting out of your seed starter tray, eliminating the need to transplant all of your germinated seeds. This also saves on production space, media and human resources by not having to spend time and effort searching for your males. We just finished a seed crop of 500 phenotypes of 10 different strains and it appears we have a 100% seedless harvest.”
– Mike Leigh, Cultivation Director
