Bringing new energy when it’s needed
New discoveries. New varieties. New experiences.

Cannabis genetics and applied genomics are what make us jump out of bed in the morning. As global leaders in this field, we help guide and support the regulated cannabis industry in Canada by breeding new cannabis genetics. We also propagate disease-free materials, and offer genetic archiving services to protect your proprietary material through tissue culture back-up.


Breeding tools

Your cannabis products start with the plant. Using our suite of in-house tests, we can assist your team with breeding activities and guide the selection process. Learn more about our SexID testing and Predictive Profiling on our Testing page


Tissue culture production

Safeguard your cannabis genetics and streamline operations through off-site, in vitro, plant tissue culture archiving. Our refined aseptic techniques and properly sterilized growing environment make this service possible.

After performing a gentle surface sterilization on vegetative shoots, we put plants into a liquid or agar medium where they can be maintained indefinitely. This reduces the need for maintenance of mother plants, and it helps prevent cultivar loss due to pests and pathogens, fire, theft, and mislabeling. When needed, your archived cannabis varieties can be transitioned back to a natural growth environment.

Lots of exciting stuff happening here when it comes to breeding and tissue culture.

Emerald Badges

The Emerald Test™ is an Inter-Laboratory Comparison and Proficiency Test (ILC/PT) program for cannabis testing labs. Proficiency test samples are manufactured by an ISO 17043 accredited PT provider. Results are submitted through an electronic data portal and data analysis is provided by the sample manufacturer with software designed to meet the requirements of ISO 13528:2015.
