The datasheet integrated in Ikaros and Isis can be used to generate customized print forms and reports.
mFISH: The single color gallery in Isis displays each single color channel, the fluorochrome profiles, and the DAPI image side by side.
With the relocation system ReloSys metaphases and other objects detected by a Metafer system can be analyzed remotely.
Metaphases on clonal slides are automatically assigned to the respective clones. The clone identifier is transferred to Ikaros after AutoCapt image acquisition.
With the extraordinary LED microscope illumination device high-quality color images in Brightfield are generated.
With the tissue FISH module analysis of cell signals in tissues is very easy. Results are available immediately and can be easily validated.
Patient and image data can be conveniently displayed, filtered, and summarized.
Metafer Slide Scanning Platform
Metafer conveniently automates a wide area of microscopic image analysis applications for life sciences. Due to Metafer's modularity and its flexible architecture, it is applicable to a vast array of applications, including cytogenetic diagnostics, hematology, pathology, toxicology, forensic sciences, and many more.
Of course, automated imaging saves time. But even more important is the reproducibility achieved by applying clearly defined standards to any analysis - slide by slide, experiment by experiment, and patient by patient. This way Metafer adds an unbiased quality of quality to your results.
Complex analysis systems tend to be cumbersome and difficult to understand. Metafer is different: unlimited access to all data, convenient display of results, and full control of all evaluation parameters guarantee, that results are generated exactly the way you want.
Ease of Use
Slide scanning is easy with Metafer. Various dedicated software modules offer streamlined tools for automated analysis and on-screen review. The microscope remains fully functional and accessible, thus allowing for the ability to check each single object, which has been relocated by a click into the comprehensive results image gallery.
Each microscopic sample is different; automation of analysis therefore demands flexibility, but is exempt from subjectivity. Metafer’s unique concept provides a subtle solution: a user-trainable classifier precisely defines the analysis standards; and with the selection of another classifier the system is quickly switched to the next assay.
Metafer grows with demand. Software and hardware are modular, and with higher workloads the level of automation can be increased; optional features such as the SlideFeeder, the automated Bar Code Reader, and the automated Immersion Oil Dispenser are easily added upon demand.
