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 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.

Micronuclei Analysis in Radiation Dosimetry
"The results shown in this paper support the value of automated MN scoring for biological biodosimetry, using the Metafer system. The obtained automated MN scores are highly correlated with the manual MN scores (r2=0.917) and a visual check of the BN confirms ths efficacy of the image analysis. Since the system makes few errors, it is not advantageous to visually validate the MN counts obtained by the Metafer system [...]. The optimisation of the fixation and the standard Metafer classifier settings were also confirmed by the quality of the image analysis."
Carl Zeiss and MetaSystems publish joint Technology Note
Carl Zeiss Microscopy, longtime partner of MetaSystems, recently published a technical note entitled "Light Microscopy in Clinical Routine Activities. An Overview of ZEISS Axio Imager and Metafer from MetaSystems". The brochure summarizes the history of Metafer and the fruitful partnership with Carl Zeiss and combines both with background knowledge on the many applications Metafer is used for.
