Abstract
ObjectiveTo accurately determine mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) levels in human blastocysts.DesignRetrospective analysis.SettingIVF clinic.Patient(s)A total of 1,396 embryos derived from 259 patients.Intervention(s)Blastocyst-derived trophectoderm biopsies were tested by next-generation sequencing (NGS) and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR).Main Outcome Measure(s)For each sample the mtDNA value was divided by the nuclear DNA...
