    Detailed workflow of the cell lysis optimization to obtain both high-quality gDNA and mRNA from the same TE biopsy. TE-A is the “clinically representative” control biopsy, lysed and processed using the standard clinical workflow for PGT-A. TE-B is the test biopsy, where cells are lysed with either SMART (Method 1) or SurePlex® (Method 2) kits. The lysate was split and processed according to the standard SurePlex® protocol for gDNA amplification, or the standard SMART-seq® protocol for cDNA synthesis. Lysis of biopsied cells with SurePlex® yields high-quality gDNA and mRNA. From each blastocyst cDNA was synthesized, amplified, and its integrity/quality was assessed by BioAnalyzer 2100 (Agilent Technologies, CA). All samples, regardless of lysis method, produced high-quality cDNA. However, only the sample lysed using SurePlex® (Method 2) produced both high-quality cDNA and gDNA which passed all clinical quality control metrics after NGS using VeriSeq® kit (highlighted with blue arrows).

    Bias associated with the amplicons from the positive controls. Figure shows the bias (trueness) associated with the amplicons from the positive controls, across the three instruments of the Bioanalyzer 2100, TapeStation, and MultiNA. The bias is based on the difference between the observed amplicon size per instrument, compared with the theoretical amplicon size based on the sequence information. NOS represents the combined NOS terminator/CaMV 35s promoter amplicon. Bias is calculated on the measurement response of base pairs (bp).

    Representative chromatograms of PCR analysis of milk DNA samples PCR products were analyzed on the Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 DNA 1,000 chip. The chromatograms are representative of samples that showed no amplification (top), weak amplification (middle), or strong amplification (bottom). Y-axis is the fluorescence detection of the PCR product. X-axis is the size of the amplicon in nucleotides. The first and last peaks are the internal standard markers (15 and 1500 nucleotides).

    RNA quality, assay reliability, and validation of endogenous controls. Total RNA quality was assessed using an Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 and endogenous controls were validated for RT-qPCR and Western blot. A) Generated gel images show representative slice, CGN, and astrocyte samples with and without 24-hr ethanol treatment. B) A standard curve was performed using a dilution series of purified L1 template. Increases in template concentration result in decreasing Cq values, as expected for a well-functioning qPCR assay (n = 4). C) 18S Cq values are shown for all tissue/cell types with and without ethanol treatment. D) Representative Western blots for β-tubulin are shown for each sample type with and without 24-hr ethanol treatment. All bars (C, D) show the mean + SEM of 4 independent experiments.

    Electropherogram and “gel-like” image of positive control on the Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100. The  x -axis on the electropherogram represents amplicon size (bp), whist the  y -axis represents the measurement response of fluorescence units (FUs). Amplicons of interest in order of size (bp) are lower marker (15), Zein (80), Lectin (90), CaMV (108) and combined CaMV 35s promoter/NOS terminator (131) amplicons, and the upper marker (1500).

    Bias associated with the amplicons from the positive controls. Figure shows the bias (trueness) associated with the amplicons from the positive controls, across the three instruments of the Bioanalyzer 2100, TapeStation, and MultiNA. The bias is based on the difference between the observed amplicon size per instrument, compared with the theoretical amplicon size based on the sequence information. NOS represents the combined NOS terminator/CaMV 35s promoter amplicon. Bias is calculated on the measurement response of base pairs (bp).

    Electropherograms obtained with the Bioanalyzer 2100 in miRNA-Ref and plasma samples. Examples of the profiles obtained from a miRNA-Ref sample at 10 ng/μL ( a , Bio-PicoChip; ( b ), Bio-SmallChip), a miRNA-Ref sample at 1 ng/μL ( c , Bio-PicoChip; ( d ), Bio-SmallChip), and a plasma sample ( e , Bio-PicoChip; ( f ), Bio-SmallChip). The 10 ng/µL miRNA-Ref sample ( a ) was diluted to fit the detection range of the Bio-PicoChip (0.05–5 ng/µL) and the final concentration was calculated by applying the dilution factor to the value obtained by the Bioanalyzer. In the miRNA-Ref samples ( a – d ), the overall profile is consistent with the presence of ribosomic RNA enriched with small RNAs, whereas in plasma samples ( e , f ) only small RNAs, but no long RNAs, are present. All electropherograms include the corresponding quantification (in bold) and the RNA integrity number (RIN) number (in italics) obtained with the Bio-PicoChip ( a , c , e ) or just the quantification (in bold) with the Bio-SmallChip ( b , d , f ).

    Validating biotin-14-dCTP incorporation by a bind and boil method. The biotin–streptavidin dissociation constant (kD) is on the order of 4 × 10−14 mol/L. However, boiling the biotin-steptavidin complexes in the presence of SDS releases these noncovalent complexes. To validate the incorporation of biotin-14-dCTP during the PCR, we assayed the supernatant of our PCR “bait” solution after mixing with Dynal M-280 beads. If biotin-14-dCTP did not incorporate during the PCR, we would expect the supernatant to contain PCR-amplified DNA. To assay the supernatant, we performed a buffer exchange using AmpureXP beads, eluted in water, and evaluated the supernatant of PCR on the Agilent BioAnalyzer 2100 High Sensitivity DNA chip (red dotted line). The Dynal M-280 beads were boiled in 0.1% SDS, and this supernatant was assayed for PCR products (dotted blue line). A second boil treatment was performed, and this supernatant was assayed for the presence of PCR products (dotted green line). FU, fluorescent units; nt, nucleotides.

    A representative example of the gel images produced during RNA quality checks performed via the Bioanalyzer 2100.  The composite gel image was generated from the results of RNA quality assessments performed on RNA extracted from larvae samples. For each kit, the lane corresponding to the sample that best represented the “average” RNA yielded is included. The first number reported for each kit represents the RIN value of the sample shown, while the numbers below represent the mean RIN value (± standard deviation) for all larvae samples extracted via each kit. Note that the lanes shown in the image were not obtained from samples run on the same Nanochip resulting in the misalignment of the 18S and 28S bands between some of the lanes.
