Automated radiation biodosimetry
Ionizing radiation produces characteristic chromosome changes. The altered chromosomes are known as dicentric chromosomes [DCs]). DC biodosimetry is approved by the IAEA for occupational radiation exposure, radiation emergencies, or monitoring long term exposures. The DC assay can also monitor effects of interventional radiation therapies.
Cytognomix has developed a novel approach to find DCs (TBME). The Automated Dicentric Chromosome Identifier and Dose Estimator (ADCI) software works on multiple platforms and uses images produced by any of the existing automated metaphase capture systems found in most cytogenetic laboratories. ADCI is now available for for trial or purchase (link). Or contact us for details (pricing).
ADCI* uses machine learning to distinguish monocentric and dicentric chromosomes (Try the Dicentric Chromosome Identifier web app). With novel image segmentation, ADCI has become a fully functional cytogenetic biodosimetry system. ADCI takes images from metaphase scanning systems, selects high quality cells, identifies dicentric chromosomes, builds biodosimetry calibration curves, and estimates exposures. ADCI fulfills the criteria established by the IAEA for accurate triage biodosimetry of a sample in less than an hour. The accuracy is comparable to an experienced cytogeneticist.

We find and validate mutations and gene signatures that others cannot with advanced, patented genomic bioinformatic technologies. Cytognomix continues our long track record of creating technologies for genomic medicine. We anticipate and implement the needs of the molecular medicine and genomics communities.
Predict chemotherapy outcomes
Pharmacogenomic responses to chemotherapy drugs can be predicted by supervised machine learning of expression and copy number of relevant gene combinations. Since 2015, CytoGnomix has used biochemical evidence to derive gene signatures from changes in gene expression in cell lines, which can subsequently be examined in patients that have been treated with the same drugs. We have derived signatures for 30 different commonly used drugs. Try out out our online predictor: https://chemotherapy.cytognomix.com.
Quantifying responses to ionizing radiation with gene expression signatures.
Gene signatures derived by machine learning have low error rates in externally validated, independent radiation exposed data. They exhibit high specificity and granularity for dose estimation in humans and mice. These signatures can be designed to avoid the effects of confounding, comorbidities which can reduce specificity for detecting radiation exposures. See: https://f1000research.com/articles/7-233/v2

Nov. 16, 2022. Article accepted about determination of radiation exposures using a worldwide cloud computing platform
“The Automated Dicentric Chromosome (DC) Identifier and Dose Estimator System (ADCI) selects and processes images to identify DCs and determines radiation dose without manual review. The goal of this study was to broaden accessibility and speed of this system with data parallelization while protecting data and software integrity.”
The US Patent and Trademark office as issued our patent number 11,501,545 titled “Smart Microscope System for Radiation Biodosimetry.” It has the same title as our previous patent no. 10,929,641, but there are some important differences. This one claims a broader spectrum of applications for estimation of absorbed radiation dose because it doesn’t require the […]
