- Intelligent Karyotyping with Ikaros (319.2kB)
In clinical cytogenetics, laboratory professionals analyze numerical and structural aberrations in chromosomes to diagnose genetic diseases or cancer. Deep Neural Networks (DNNs), a recent innovation in artificial intelligence, separate and classify banded chromosomes to generate karyogram proposals in Ikaros.
- Spot Counting (665.0kB)
Optimizing the counting of FISH spots can be a challenging task for laboratories in cytogenetics and hematology. By customizing the functionalities of the slide scanning software Metafer, it is possible to replace manual FISH spot counting with a swift workflow involving automated microscopy and interpretation by the expert.
- Automated Solutions for Cancer Genetics (311.9kB)
Automated workflows can be customized for occupational cancer studies and genetic toxicology (in vitro micronucleus assay and the Comet assay), for cancer genetics (karyotyping and fluorescence in situ hybridization), and for therapy monitoring (detection of rare tumor cells). Turnaround times can be reduced, and experts have more time to focus on complex tasks.
- Sperm Detection (238.8kB)
Sperm cells are a crucial piece of evidence for solving sexual crimes and are usually detected by microscopy. Using deep learning algorithms implemented in the Metafer slide scanning soft-ware, MetaSystems has put together a workflow that brings the benefits of artificial intelligence to the field of forensic microscopy.
