MetaSystems will participate in the 9th Congress of Medical Geneticists (Assises de Génétique Humaine et Médicale) in Nantes, France.
Innovative Solutions for Automated Imaging
Since 1986, MetaSystems has been developing and manufacturing systems for automated microscope based imaging. Our close communication and relationships with our customers have been an essential part of the MetaSystems philosophy; the last 30 years have proven that this is a successful strategy. From humble beginnings, MetaSystems has grown into a leading solutions provider while still being connected to our roots as an independent, employee-owned, innovation-driven company.
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 [...].
