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.
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.

Automated Evaluation of a Bladder Cancer Multiprobe-FISH Assay
"With the current report, we [...] share our experiences and describe the fundamental steps toward optimization of automated-spot counting using this complex, multitarget FISH assay. [...] The system was driven by Metafer 4.0 user-trainable software, consisting of MetaCyte and Isis modules [...], enabling cytogenetic investigations with various levels of automation. [...] The average difference between the rate of positive cells detected by manual and automated analysis was 3.20% (62.98%) and the correlation between the two data classes was strong (r = 0.9455). [...] In conclusion, it is possible to automate [...] evaluation using an adaptable, user-trainable system; diagnostic accuracy being generally comparable to manual analysis."
