Artificial intelligence opens entirely new horizons for image analysis. In the latest versions of Ikaros, MetaSystems has implemented Deep Neural Network (DNN) based artificial intelligence that greatly facilitates the processing of metaphase images for karyotyping. MetaSystems is proud to announce that our innovative DNN-based technology has now received a patent entitled ‘Methods for Automated Chromosome Analysis’” (U.S. patent no. 10,991,098).
Metafer and XRNA Probes Reveal Incidence for Italy's Covid-19 Patient Zero
Researchers led by University of Milan dermatologist Raffaele Gianotti and pathologist Prof. Massimo Barberis, director of the Molecular Pathology Unit at Institute of European Oncology in Milan report evidence of early SARS-CoV-2 infection in an Italian patient published in the British Journal of Dermatology. The detection was achieved using the XRNA SARS-CoV-2 FISH probe and Metafer as the analysis system.
