The Genetiscanner automatic metaphase finder (AMF) instrument manufactured by Perceptive Scientific Instruments, Inc. is capable of searching a microscope slide and generating a list of the stage coordinates of the metaphases within the 20 mm x 40 mm search area in ten minutes. It can process a cassette load of sixty slides in approximately ten hours, ranking the metaphases according to six categories of quality. It uses a robot arm to load and unload slides from a 60-slide cassette onto an… CONTINUE READING
