29 29 DX Reagent Verification Testing Reagents and Consumables DX Reagent Pack (P/N2220) was functionally tested using Whole Blood CorProtocol™ standard X-tractor Consumable Pack (standard; P/N 2270). Experimental setup Samples Whole bovine blood was collected in an EDTA Vaccutainer Maximum whole blood sample size was tested (200 µL) 96 samples total were processed (whole 96-well plate); 48 whole blood and 48 no template controls (NTCs) To test for well-to-well cross contamination, samples were extracted in a checkerboard pattern (as shown) alternating positive samples ( ● ) and NTCs ( ● ). 123456789101112 ABCDEFGHABCDEFGH

32 32 DX Reagent Verification Testing cont. Real-Time Analysis Real-Time quantitative amplification analysis was done on all samples targeting the G6PD1 gene to single copy sensitivity (40 cycles) to test for inhibitors and for evidence of cross-contamination Using the X-tractor Gene™ will minimise any lab’s contamination risk! Real-time amplification analysis of all samples Cross-contamination Results no amplification of alternate NTC samples no evidence of cross-contamination Amplification Results early, reproducible amp. of all positive samples no evidence of PCR inhibitors DX Reagent Verification Run ■ Positive samples ■ NTC samples Maximum C T 25.04 Minimum C T 22.19 Average C T 24.59 C T Std.
