A processed sample is a sample which has been processed by ADCI software through the ADCI Process Queue. When a sample is processed, metaphase images are segmented and dicentric chromosomes are counted at a variety of SVM sigma values. These dicentric counts are used when generating calibration curves, in dose estimation, and to generate plots. Additionally, samples cannot be viewed in the metaphase image viewer until they are processed. To learn how to process a sample, consult the sample page.
