CytoVision Cytogenetics

CytoVision Automated Cytogenetics Platform

Simple interface screens guide user through the analysis workflow

On-screen analysis: Review captured cells on-screen

CytoVision on-screen analysis supports a variety of applications in brightfield and fluorescence. Captured cells are fed to desk-top review stations for analysis creating a more efficient workflow and more comfortable working conditions for staff.

NPAAC guidelines for routine blood analysis: 5 cells analyzed band-for-band (550bphs), 10 cells counted, 2 representative cells captured and karyotyped.

Reporting times reduced, sample throughput increased

Overtime decreased, cases per analyst increased

Overall sample numbers

Purpose:

  • Karyotyping (G-banded analysis)
  • QF-PCR-aneuploidy screen (with karyotype)
  • FISH - micro-deletion studies and chromosome characterization
  • MLPA (sub-telomere and centromere) and aCGH

“Implementation of automated scanning and on-screen analysis has led to a significant improvement in reporting times, quality and success rate and has also decreased the poor quality rate for both Routine and Urgent blood samples”
Administrator, Yorkhill Hospital, Glasgow

  • Purpose: find, rank and capture metaphase cells in post natal blood samples
  • Criteria: scan up to maximum 300 metaphases per slide, capture 50 best cells
  • Typical throughput: 2800 samples per year

Backlog cleared 8 months ahead of schedule

Case Study: Implementing automated scanning and capture to reduce backlog

Data courtesy of Victoria J. Anthony-Dubernet, Clinical Cytogeneticist, South West Thames Regional Genetics Service, St. Georges Hospital, London, UK

Purpose

  • The lab had a routine blood sample backlog for nearly 4 years, due to staff shortages
  • Implement CytoVision and GSL-120 slide loaders to reduce backlog
