Automated Dicentric Chromosome Analysis
Dicentric Chromosome Assay (DCA) is the most preferred cytogenetic technique for absorbed radiation dose assessment in exposed humans. [...], automation of procedures for lymphocyte harvesting, chromosome preparation and DC analysis can reduce the turnaround time considerably for biodosimetry. Manual DC analysis takes an enormous amount of time and an experienced scorer may take anywhere between 6–8h for analyzing 500 metaphase cells. [...] We [...] estimated the analysis time required for scoring the samples of 100 exposed individuals in a triage scenario by both manual and automated modes and found that the turnaround time was reduced by 4–5 folds by the automated scoring compared to manual scoring. [...] The automated dicentric analysis tool can be an effectively used for large scale radiological/nuclear incidents where a rapid biodosimetry is critically required for an appropriate medical management of several hundreds and thousands of exposed people.
