The Great Lakes Cytogenomics Conference is held in May of each year in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Attendees from all over Canada and the USA come to share and discuss their experiences in the field of Clinical Laboratory Genetics and Cytogenomics. This conference is of particular interest to cytogenomicists, trainee fellows, and technologists working in the field.
Innovative Solutions for Automated Imaging
Since 1986 MetaSystems has been designing and manufacturing systems for computerized automated microscopic imaging. From the very beginning, the close relationship to the end user has been an essential part of the MetaSystems philosophy. The following three decades have revealed that this was a successful strategy; from humble beginnings, MetaSystems has grown into a leading solution provider which still remains connected to its strong roots.
MetaSystems’ latest innovation, Neon, is a dynamic, modern imaging platform which reliably manages cases, images, and results from single workstation environments to large multi-user, multi-site installations. The Neon imaging platform ensures that all relevant information is accessible whenever needed.

Visualization of Angiogenesis During Cancer Development
Vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR2) is a crucial mediator of tumour angiogenesis. High expression levels of the receptor have been correlated to poor prognosis in cancer patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the pharmacokinetics and angiogenesis imaging abilities of the VEGFR2-targeting positron emission tomography (PET) tracer (R)-[11C]PAQ. [...] Whole slides were captured using a 10x [...] primary objective on a VSlide slide scanning microscope [...]. Individual field-of-view images were stitched to produce images of entire lung sections with microscopic resolution. Images were analysed using the (VSViewer) software [...]. The results indicate that (R)-[11C]PAQ is a promising imaging biomarker for visualization of angiogenesis, based on VEGFR2 expression, in primary tumours and during metastasis development.
