Automated FISH Spot Counting
Automated FISH Signal Detection, Classification and Enumeration
GenASIs SpotScan provides an advanced FISH signal detection, enumeration, cell segmentation and classification solution for automated high-volume, high-accuracy FISH analysis. SpotScan is ASI’s FISH automation solution that runs under the GenASIs Scan & Analysis platform.
SpotScan supports many probes out of the box and is configurable to work with all FISH probes through its open architecture. SpotScan’s hardware platform is based on an automatic microscope with a motorized 9-slide stage or an optional 81-slide automated slide feeder for “walkaway” functionality, allowing automated slide analysis, documentation and reporting. The system supports fully interactive, semi-automated and fully-automated operations to suit any lab’s workflow.
SpotScan preserves images, reports and analysis in an advanced bioinformatics case data management system (CDM) which comes standard with the system. Images, patient information and reports are managed by CDM, ensuring complete and accurate reference and documentation.
- Automated scoring of large numbers of cells, with remote review outside of the dark room
- Dramatic reduction in scanning time using an intelligent “pre-scan” to identify optimal regions of interest
- Advanced image processing algorithms enable cell cluster and signal overlap detection and analysis
- Faint signals detection and classification from a high-sensitive camera and computer aided image enhancements
