Product Description

Automatic Metaphase Finder

Automated Metaphase Finding and Analysis With Greater Efficiency

GenASIs BandView’s Automatic Metaphase Finder improves workflow efficiency. The Automatic Metaphase Finder scans the entire slide, locating and capturing the best metaphases and remembering their coordinates; often completing a slide in minutes. The Automatic Metaphase Finder is also supported by ASI’s robotic tray loader, allowing 81 slides to be loaded in a single batch, reloaded without disrupting system operation, and providing labs with 24×7 continuous scanning and analysis.

Metaphase Coordinates

The Automatic Metaphase Finder does a preliminary scan of the sample at a low 4X magnification. After finding the most promising metaphases, the system returns to the coordinates to perform a capture at a higher objective. Both the 4X scan and the higher objective captures are stored in an image gallery which integrates to the LIS.

During review, it is always possible to return to the exact coordinates under the microscope by clicking on a metaphase in the image gallery.

Peripheral Equipment

GenASIs integrates with peripheral equipment which further enhance output and quality including:

  • Robotic tray loader: Keep analysis running 24 hours a day with ASI’s robotic tray loader enabling continuous “walk away” scanning and analysis.
  • Automatic barcode reader: As slides are loaded from the robotic tray loader for analysis, a barcode reader scans the slide and works in tandem with GenASIs BandView to associate the slide with the correct patient.
  • Automated oil immersion dispenser: Automatically provides oil when required for higher magnification objectives.

ASI is FDA cleared for In Vitro Diagnostic to be used for karyotyping with real time microscope images from stained metaphases.

ASI develops image analysis & diagnostic tools for clinical and research applications. The company’s GenASIs platform integrates within the existing workflow of the microscope and LIS framework, improving upon the lab’s capabilities by providing a turn-key solution capable of slide capture, image analysis, case report and sign-out. With ASI, labs achieve higher throughput and enhanced clinical results based on accurate, reproducible and standardized analysis.

ASI specializes in cytogenetic and pathology applications, and currently supports brightfield and fluorescent microscopes for karyotype, in-situ hybridization (ISH) and immuno-histochemistry (IHC) applications. And with our unique capabilities in HyperSpectral imaging, ASI is also the leading supplier of spectral imaging microscopes to research labs around the globe.


Via an array of modular add-on tools which increase functionality and efficiency, ASI offers a custom-fit solution to any sized lab.

The GenASIs™ automated imaging platforms for genetic and pathology analysis provide state of the art diagnostic aids for pathologists and cytogeneticists, with reproducible and reliable results. The GenASIs platforms can be used with any brand of brightfield or fluorescent microscope, and support manual and automatic scanning for a wide range of workflows and applications, to best suit the needs, size and budget of any lab’s.

The GenASIs Hyperspectral is an innovative platform for companion diagnostics, providing the perfect solution for un-mixing of multiplexed biomarkers and superb qualitative and quantitative data by coping with many dyes simultaneously, both in brightfield and fluorescent staining.

The GenASIs platform is FDA cleared for FISH clinical applications such as ALK, UroVysion, HER2/neu, CEP XY and Karyotyping. ASI complies with major regulatory requirements and international quality standards.

ASI, the industry’s leading microscopy imaging solution provider since 1993, has dozens of registered patents in the US, Europe and Japan and thousands of systems deployed worldwide. ASI has worldwide offices in the US, Europe and Asia and a global network of distributors.
