Project: Automatic metaphase finder.
- project duration
- 01-DEC-01 – 30-NOV-02
- An automatic metaphase finder is a fully-automated system for localisation of metaphases in lymphocyte cultures on microscope slides. It will allow the study of chromosomal damage in lymphocytes of populations exposed to mutagens regarding effect and susceptibility. With the system the evaluation of DNA damage by other techniques as e.g. the Comet assay will become feasible for the research unit.
