The EUROPattern Microscope facilitates fully automated immunofluorescence microscopy for top-standard IIFT diagnostics – from slide loading and high-resolution image acquisition to computer-aided result interpretation. Thanks to its capacity of 500 substrate fields per run and the high system speed of 13 seconds per image, the microscope is perfectly suited even for the highest throughputs.
The acquired image data is automatically transmitted to the pattern recognition software EUROPattern Classifier, which is based on deep convolutional neural networks, a deep-learning method. The program not only provides classification in terms of “positive” and “negative” for many substrates, but also reliably identifies different patterns for ANA, ANCA, AMA and anti-LKM (LKM-like), including mixed patterns. In combination with the laboratory management software EUROLabOffice 4.0 it allows fast and secure result archiving and bidirectional connection to the laboratory information system (LIS).
With this new development EUROIMMUN enables fully automated and standardised processing with highest capacity and highest efficiency for laboratories with high sample throughput
