Metafer MetaCyte:

Automated Scoring of Radiation-Induced gamma-H2AX Foci

Foci Scoring"For automated slide scanning and foci scoring, the MetaCyte software module of the Metafer 4 scanning system [...] was used. [...] To validate the automated foci scoring, the combined images stored in the image gallery, were manually analyzed by 2 independent scorers. [...] The automated processing of the slides offers both objectivity in scoring and increased statistical power [...]. All our results are based on automated scoring of foci number using MetaCyte software. Preliminary validation of this automated system by comparison with manual foci analysis demonstrated the suitability of the automated scoring mode."
