The society has allocated enough time and space for all disciplines embraced by the SSM. Clinical and laboratory microbiology being only part of the many fields where members of the Swiss Society for Microbiology are active. Sessions are also foreseen for prokaryotic biology, environmental microbiology, virology, and mycology.

Automated Scoring of Radiation-Induced gamma-H2AX Foci
"For automated slide scanning and foci scoring, the MetaCyte software module of the Metafer 4 scanning system [...] was used. [...] To validate the automated foci scoring, the combined images stored in the image gallery, were manually analyzed by 2 independent scorers. [...] The automated processing of the slides offers both objectivity in scoring and increased statistical power [...]. All our results are based on automated scoring of foci number using MetaCyte software. Preliminary validation of this automated system by comparison with manual foci analysis demonstrated the suitability of the automated scoring mode."
