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."
