Metafer MetaCyte:

Analysis of Bone Marrow Samples

"Chimerism analysis after sex-mismatched bone marrow or peripheral blood stem-cell transplantation is an important diagnostic component to monitor transplantation and minimal residual disease and DLI. [...] As advantage of automated analysis using Metafer turned out, that the picture and the coordinates of each cell are memorized. [...] Moreover, it is possible to analyze huge amounts of cells and to detect small subpopulations of residual cells. Automated analysis correlates linearly with manual analysis [...]."
