Nearly 4,200 scientists– a record number –who submitted an abstract for ASM Microbe 2019 can’t be wrong.
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.

Cytogenetic Mapping of the Alpaca
Cytogenetic chromosome maps offer molecular tools for genome analysis and clinical cytogenetics and are of particular importance for species with difficult karyotypes, such as camelids (2n = 74). [...] Chromosomes were stained with Giemsa, counted, and arranged into karyotypes using the Ikaros [...] software. A minimum of 20 cells were analyzed per individual. Aberrant chromosomes were further analyzed by G- [...] and C-banding [...]. This study reports the generation of a genome-wide collection of 151 gene-containing BAC clones and the construction of a 44-marker cytogenetic map for the alpaca. According to our best knowledge, this is the first cytogenetic gene map for the alpaca or any other camelid species [...].

Workshop on Automated Genetic Toxicology at KIT, Daejeong, Korea
The Korea Institute of Toxicology (KIT) is a government-funded research institute to evaluate the safety of medicine, bio-related products and chemicals such as agricultural pesticides, food additives and cosmetics, environmental toxicity and ecotoxicity. As a leading provider of non-clinical toxicology studies, KIT serves as a core infrastructure in the biotechnology industry. In May 2019, Dr. Seong-Hoon Park from KIT organized the first KIT Workshop for Automated Genetic Toxicology Testing. On this event, which was kindly supported by Mirax Corporation, local and overseas speakers summarized current proceedings in the automation of genetic toxicology test analysis.
