Ireland’s Pixcelldata extends USA base to grow sales

Irish software firm targets US Southeastern region with Collibio digital pathology solution

Dublin, Ireland & Atlanta, GA, United States – 06 May, 2014 – Pixcelldata, the innovative Irish developer of digital pathology management and collaboration software has established a partnership with Atlanta based Edge Solutions to market Pixcelldata’s Collibio software product across the Southeastern region of the United States, the companies announced today.

Collibio software is an advanced web application for managing, storing and sharing digital pathology images and associated case data. It was developed in Ireland by Pixcelldata and has already been adopted by hospital pathology departments, medical research and teaching institutions worldwide.

Digital pathology is a dynamic, image-based environment that enables the acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information generated from a digitised glass slide. A digitised slide can be viewed using a web browser as an alternative to using a microscope for clinical, research, and educational slide review.

Collibio improves efficiency and interoperability between medical institutions bringing cost saving benefits by integrating with multiple different imaging systems and helping institutions to avoid ‘vendor lock-in’. In particular, it allows pathologists to collaborate immediately and easily online, allowing them to diagnose and review digital pathology images from proprietary scanner systems.

Working with Pixcelldata, Atlanta based Edge Solutions already has a robust healthcare solutions practice, and it sells IT storage platforms that support Collibio.

Pixcelldata’s CEO Alan Hanley said, "Pixcelldata sees that Edge Solutions has the right mix of end user and underlying infrastructure skills that will allow Collibio to be deployed into a wide range of institutions in the Southeastern United States. Our product is successfully being used around the globe, and we value partners like Edge Solutions who can help us to ensure our mutual clients gain the vast improvements available through modern digital imaging solutions."

Bobby Thomas, senior vice president and co-founder of Edge Solutions said, "We have the right team in place to deliver custom storage technology solutions and the industry expertise to meet the needs of healthcare organizations in our markets. Adding in this new solution, we are very optimistic about Collibio and being able to deliver complete digital pathology solutions."
