Detecting Spermatozoa in Forensic Samples
"Human spermatozoa detection remains a crucial part of the analyses performed by Search Technologists on sexual assault exhibits submitted to the forensic laboratory. [...] A comparison between the manual scoring and automated searches of human spermatozoa using Metafer following Sperm Hy-Liter™ staining indicated an excellent concordance (close to 100%) with manual spermatozoa counts [...]. The results of this study indicate that automated scoring of fluorescently stained human spermatozoa in mock sexual assault exhibits can be carried out reliably and reproducibly using welldeveloped classifiers for the MetaSystems Metafer image analysis software system."
