MECOS Microscope-Analyzers

MECOS-C2 family of automated microscopy systems

Spermatozoa mobility and morphology analyses

The MECO-SPERM analyzer captures and visualizes trajectories of live spermatozoa, quantitatively assesses the types of their movement. The Analyzer allows to perform analyses of sperm morphology in accordance with the Krueger's criteria. To analyze mobility the MECOS-C2-MECO-SPERM system accomplishes a film, to analyze morphology allows to capture a fields of view or to make virtual slide. Production of films and virtual slides by MECOS-C2-MECO-SPERM may conduct junior staff with minimal effort. Visual analysis of films and virtual slides on computer screen using MECO-SPERM Informatics is not depends on a term of validity of biomaterial, more productive than manual microscopy analysis. Application of MECOS-C2-MECO-SPERM increases objectivity of the technique and its productivity, creates conditions for local and remote collective maintenance of analyses flows, for quality control and training.

The MECO-SPERM analyzer features

Type of specimen

1) Live sperm cells in depth of 10 µm camera (Makler, Leja, MMC-SK, etc.);

2) Diff-Quick colored sperm smear

Specimen load

1-8 cameras; 1- 400 smears depending MECOS-S2 hardware platform

Identification of specimens

the dialog in list or barcode

Specimen model making

  1. Shooting a video of field of view with live sperm (30 fps with a resolution of 2 m pixel);
  2. Smear: dialog commit of fields of view in Specimen Gallery / Virtual slide making by tools similar to  MECO-SCAN

Mobility analysis

Automatic color tracking and visualizing of trajectories of spermatozoa in the video.

Automatically detect settings mobility population:

- total number of sperm;

- Mobility sorted by 4 classes;

- 7 trajectory parameters.

Population mobility statistics.

Morphology analysis



View Specimen Gallery / Virtual slide  Interactively select the Kruger type of cell morphology by menu with the ability to make grafical marks, to capture cell images in the Galleries of sorting  and with calculating the formula of normal / abnormal sperm cells
