CYTOGENETICS SOFTWARE SUITE

GENIKON is an image processing software for Interactive and / or Automatic Cariotyping on peripheral blood samples, villi, amniotic fluid and tissues, labeled with different dyes such as Giemsa, acridine orange; as well as in the routine it can also be applied for research use, it is therefore advisable for FISH (Fluorescence In Situ Hybridisation) or more sophisticated techniques such as CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridisation) and Multicolor FISH, automatic research metaphase and interphase nuclei.

Manual and Automatic Karyotyping allow to construct karyotypes in light field / fluorescence / Dapi. The software offers all the functions of automatic cutting and reconstruction of the karyotype as well as making possible more detailed analyzes to allow the study of anomalous chromosomes and to make comparisons with a database of ideograms with bands of 400-550-850.

Special functions are represented by the automatic counting of the bands present in the metaphase for the quality control of the plates and the opportunity to export and import images in different formats (TIFF, JPEG, BMP and others) thus allowing to send and import images received from others systems not belonging to the GENIKON series.

The karyotyping suite in addition to acquiring, karyotyping and creating cytogenetic investigation reports also plays an important role in the patient data archive. The archive is in fact modular and modifiable by the operator to perfectly reflect the needs of the Genetic testing Laboratory.
