4 and CoolCube 1 camera (Metasystems, USA) magnifying 100 times.
Automated scoring of lymphocyte micronuclei by the MetaSystems Metafer
image cytometry system and its application in studies of human mutagen sensitivity and biodosimetry of genotoxin exposure.
The automation of MN scoring with the Metafer 4 platform (MetaSystems, Germany) has minimised the variability of the assay and rendered it rapid and less subjective.
To measure the chromosomal radiosensitivity of SA breast cancer patients in a case-control study design with the micronucleus assay and the Metafer 4 scoring system.
Combination with the nuclear dye TO-PRO-3 was chosen for the rare cell-detection software (Metafer
P module RCDetect; Metasystems) to identify the HT-29 cells on the basis of a preestablished set of parameters, as described previously (10).
