Welcome to 3R Biotech!
Your Trusted HLVd Testing, Tissue Culture, and Genotyping Partner
Providing Tissue Culture, HLVd, Viral and Fungal Testing, and Genetic Certification to the Agricultural Industry. We eliminate the risks and variables of commercial cultivation by providing our customers with verified, stable genetics and vigorous, disease-free clones.
Our Main Service
We are NOT BREEDERS. 3R helps growers, breeders, and nurseries ensure that their crops and plants are virus and pathogen free. We achieve this using tissue culture and rigorous pathogen testing.
We provide high throughput genetic identification to the agricultural and horticultural industies, with further expantion into the small berries and grapevine industry in the near future.

We Employ Latest Research and Technology in Pathogen Testing
Currently, for HLVd testing, our lab utilizes RT-PCR technology with a host control gene. This ensures that there are no false negatives due to sample degradation or a failed PCR/LAMP reaction as the host control gene is detected in every reaction. Furthermore, RT-PCR is much less likely to produce false positives compared to its counterpart RT-LAMP which uses enzymes possessing a higher rate of off-target amplification. Our RT-PCR also has an additional layer of testing integrity as two separate targets of HLVd are detected at the same time, something that RT-LAMP is not capable of.

Hop Latent Viroid and Virus Identification
Accurately identifying any HLVd or virus issues you may have allows for quick removal of those plants, or targeting those varieties for tissue culture
Fungal and Bacterial Identification
Accurately identifying any Pythium or Fusarium pathogens and bacterial issues your facility may be dealing with
Why People Trust Us
Our lab’s advanced technology, experienced professionals, and unwavering commitment to reliability earn the trust of countless individuals, ensuring confident plant health decisions.
We’re thrilled to share our latest collaborative research with Dr. Zamir Punja at Simon Fraser University! Big congrats to 3R Biotech’s Dr. Jack Munz for all his hard work contributing to this research.
3 Rivers Biotech Identifies Root Tissue from Mature Plants as the Most Reliable to Detect Hop Latent Viroid (HLVd)
3R, a leading plant tissue culture company, and it’s pathogen testing subsidiary Genie Lab announced that after an extensive study of HLVd distribution in infected plants, testing of root samples from mature plants dramatically improves the detection of the viroid, thus limiting the potentiality of false negatives.
