ZEISS in collaboration with MetaSystems | Metaphase Search Reloaded - Artificial Intelligence Based Solutions for Rapid and Accurate Karyotyping | Webinar and Live Demo

June 9, 2021 | Wednesday | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM IST


Based on three decades of experience and continual advancement, MetaSystems has developed the most comprehensive and automated cytogenetic solutions. The new CoolCube 4 camera enables ultra-high resolution and unprecedented speeds in scanning while the next generation Ikaros DNN (Deep Neural Network) (US patent no: 10,991,098) enables Artificial Intelligence (AI) augmented automatic separation and karyotyping. This AI-based chromosome classification is the next quantum leap in optimizing chromosome analysis which allows investigators for an unrivalled gain in karyotyping efficiency, accuracy and represents a fully automated workflow from scanning to karyotyped metaphases. It therefore will be the first out of many MetaSystems products which will benefit from the applications of AI.
