EUROIMMUN Patternsupport

This software offers the user comprehensive training in the area of indirect immunofluorescence. Further, the software supports the interpretation of results generated visually at the microscope. It allows comparison of microscopic result images with archived fluorescence images of known specificities, directly at the microscope. The program supports clinicians in the identification and differentiation of optically similar fluorescence images in special routine laboratory diagnostics.

Expert knowledge is made available directly to the user: the program explains fluorescence patterns that are unfamiliar to the user and indicates their diagnostic relevance – with just one or two mouse clicks. The pattern-recognition and learning program for autoimmune diagnostics by indirect immunofluorescence (PATTERNSUPPORT) can contribute to the harmonisation of indirect immunofluorescence, which up until now has been difficult to standardise due to individual interpretations.
