Mesodissection performance is measured on the basis of Resolution, Accuracy, Efficiency, and Purity.  The following are the definitions for each of the metrics:

Resolution = Width of minimum dissectible area (a circle, generated by touching the rotating blade to the tissue without transverse movement).

Accuracy = The average distance between the boundary of the digitally indicated AOI (Area Of Interest) and the actual boundary that was dissected

Efficiency = The percent of tissue recovered from the slide surface relative to manual methods, measured by DNA quantitation.

Purity = The percent of the total sample recovered that is from the dissected area. Measured by dissecting close to the boundary of tissues that are easily distinguished by qPCR.
