PG-Seq Rapid Non-Invasive Kit with High Correlation to Biopsied Embryos

for Illumina® & Thermo Fisher® Ion Torrent® Instruments

The PG-Seq™ Rapid Non-invasive PGT kit has been specifically developed to analyze picogram quantities of DNA (low template DNA) from spent embryo culture media or blastocoelic fluid samples for non-invasive preimplantation genetic testing. Optimization of the kit was performed using non-invasive samples provided to PerkinElmer from 15 labs around the world, each using different embryology protocols and accuracy was assessed by the degree of correlation to embryo biopsies tested with a range of commercially available PGT-A kits.

The kit is a modified version of the PG-Seq™ Rapid kit, which uses a two-step PCR to whole genome amplify and then attach indexes and sequencer-specific adapters to the template DNA, in a fast, 3-hour sample preparation workflow. The kit is available in an Illumina® or Thermo Fisher® Ion Torrent® sequencer compatible formats. From DNA to data analysis, the kit includes all reagents required for whole genome amplification, indexing, plus PG-Find™ analysis software for automatic calling of aneuploidy and copy number variants.

Example results from spent embryo culture media; 45,XY,-9 and 47,XX,+21, both concordant with embryo biopsy results.

“From what we’ve observed so far, the results look excellent, and we are looking forward to further developing our non-invasive PGT program.”
