The German Society of Human Genetics, formerly the "Society of Anthropology and Human Genetics", was founded in 1987. Its principal objective is the promotion of research, education and practicing in all areas of human genetics. The society organizes scientific meetings, conferences and workshops to share and discuss scientific progress. In addition, the society encourages and integrates different scientific and clinical specialties of human genetics.
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.

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."
