GenVault Overview January 2005
The Problem Conventional biosample management will not meet the ensuing demand for access to genetic samples and testing.
The Products GenVault’s complete sample management solution: Consumables – sample storage & recovery plates Hardware – sample handling equipment Software – sample tracking & annotation …for the storage, retrieval, recovery and distribution of biosamples.
Porous Storage Support Media Little upfront effort to store samples long term Chemically treated to isolate and preserve DNA for years (14 so far) at room temperature Optimal use of sample Easy access to 384 independent aliquots Store enough DNA for multiple experiments per dry aliquot (element) Conventional shipping methods No biohazard labeling/treatment DNA easily extracted from elements w/ proprietary room temperature protocol GenPlate: Dry-State Storage Consumable
Permanent Sample Identification Highly accurate sample tracking via proprietary dual sample identification GenCodes linked to de-identified data remain with DNA at all times Barcode on each plate GenCode on each element
Element Recovery – Study Plate Assembly Cap Study Tube
DNA Recovery - GenSolve Wash elements Purify DNA
DNA Recovery Semi-automated protocol Punching and recovery station Multi-channel pipette 1-12 Study Tubes Automated protocol 96 tip liquid handler 1-96 Study Tubes
Element DNA Yield and Variability Quantity (ng) Concentration (ng/ l) Min440.3 Max Average1320.9
GenPlate DNA Quality Mostly double stranded DNA Picogreen quantitation Large fragments (many Kb) PCR up to 9.3Kb PFGE shows >35Kb Compatible with downstream applications WGA (Qiagen (MSI), GE-Amersham, Rubicon) Genotyping Illumina (Reproducibility >0.98) Lanes 1 and 7; 500bp ladder, Lanes 2-5 are amplicons from GenVault eluted DNA and lanes 8-11 are amplicons from Qiagen extracted DNA. Lanes 2 and 8; 110bp amplicon, Lanes 3 and 9; 558bp amplicon, Lanes 4 and 10; 1764bp amplicon and lanes 5 and 11; 1Kbp amplicon. Products were amplified using one universal PCR protocol. 5ng of dsDNA was added to each reaction. Gel is 1% agarose, run at 120V for 45 min and stained with EtBr. GenVault Eluted DNA Qiagen Extracted DNA
GenPlate vs. Qiagen via ABI Identifiler ® Left: DNA extracted from blood sample using Qiagen. Right: DNA eluted from GenVault media with same blood sample applied. DNA was then analyzed using the ABI Identifiler kit. DNA eluted from GenPlate performs as well as Qiagen extracted DNA on ABI Identifiler test.
Consumable Product Plans DNA Protein RNA Blood, Buccal, Buffy, Tissue Blood, Tissue Tissue Clones Bacterial
Next Year: Protein Plate
80% of immunoassays “work” in dry state 70% show signal increase relative to frozen Evaluating on other platforms (MS)
Future: GenPlate for Paraffin Tissue Samples 307M tissue samples are archived in the US, growing at an annual rate of 20M samples (RAND, 2004) Feasibility established at M.D. Anderson and VA Hospital Direct thermal extraction of DNA Direct transfer of fluidized DNA to GenPlate Room temperature storage Greater than 75% recovery Supports: PCR up to 500bp, WGA (Rubicon), Microsatellites (ABI Identifiler) Early genotyping results (Illumina)
