We Can Test for Hops Latent Viroid!

On-Site (i-Test)

With this kit, you can get results in minutes – no need to ship plant material to a lab! Our i-Test is a product line designed around one simple idea: placing the power of molecular testing into everyone’s hands. The i-Test relies on targeted isothermal amplification using our patent-pending technology: LARIAT.

Some Benefits of i-Test

  • ● Identify if your plant has a pathogen such as Hops Latent Viroid
  • ● Catch the infection before it hurts your bottom line
  • ● Identify plant sex up to 4x faster than visual detection
  • ● Maximize crop space by raising more or only female plants.
  • ● Conserve resources typically wasted on male plants such as water, energy, nutrients, labor & pesticides

What is innovative about i-TEST?

Performing genetic testing typically requires a lab and a scientist with molecular knowledge. This process typically requires PCR (polymerase chain reaction) which requires purified DNA extracted from your plant material, a sterile lab to limit contamination, and a precise machine capable of increasing and decreasing temperatures in a fine-tuned manner to allow for amplifying a molecular address to identify a particular trait. Using this process requires an investment of ~$40,000 plus the necessary skills to run the machine that typically requires years to master. Additionally, in order to read the results of this test requires several different, potentially harmful chemicals, in addition to the ability to interpret what the results mean.


i-Test simplifies this process by allowing for the extraction of DNA or RNA and amplification in a single process, incubating at a large temperature range thus allowing for common household items to be used, and an easy readout through a color change. We developed a brand new type of isothermal amplification that we term LARIAT.

Seems Too Simple

The science behind this type of testing is anything but simple. We have done the hard work to simplify the process. Identifying the molecular address and pattern that correlates the genotype and phenotype, manufacturing the reaction to achieve consistent results, and quality controlling the genetic variability are processes that all take time, expertise, and resources.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please reach us at info@vernebioanalytics.com if you cannot find an answer to your question.

How do I run the i-Test?

The i-Test is run in 4 simple steps:

  • 1. Label your plant
  • 2. Sample the leaf in the predisposed reaction mix
  • 3. Place the mix in the oven for 30 minutes
  • 4. Read a colorimetric result!
    I-Test Kits also come with instructions! If you’d like to have an internal training that will take you through the science, complete with a 30-minute lecture and hands-on demo, email us!

What tests can you run with the i-Test as of now?

Current testing options are male detection, THC, and HpLvd

How long does the i-Test take?

Only 30-40 minutes to get results!

What equipment do I need for the i-Test?

A normal kitchen oven or dehydrator, some sand in an oven safe container, and a kitchen thermometer. We do have packages for sale containing all equipment needed. The rest we send to you!
