Pixcelldata Announces New Deal with Dutch Tele-Pathology Specialists eX-Path Ahead of ECP 2014
eX-Path will use Pixcelldata’s Collibio digital pathology management and collaboration software
Dublin, Ireland – 27th August, 2014 – Pixcelldata, the innovative Irish developer of digital pathology management and collaboration software has announced a major new deal with Dutch based eX-Path, global providers of tele-pathology services, founded by renowned pathology expert, Dr. Marius Nap.
The announcement was made in advance of the 26th European Congress of Pathology which is taking placing between August 30th and September 3rd in the ExCel Arena, London where Pixcelldata will demonstrate its innovative solution.
Founded in 2013, eX-Path specialises in processing and diagnosis of patient tissue samples. A key area for the company is the provision of an Immunohistochemistry (IHC) service support to pathologists located across the globe.
Once the samples have been prepared and analysed, eX-Path provides access to the image-rich pathology data between various locations for the purpose of diagnostics, research and education.
Pixcelldata’s Collibio software, which is an advanced web application for storing, managing, reviewing, and sharing digital pathology images and associated case data, will be used as the collaboration platform for samples.
Marius Nap, Head of Pathology and Co-Founder of eX-Path said, "IHC is a powerful tool for pathologists because it gives them the answers to questions that are impossible to solve using other techniques.
However, it can be quite a difficult process, particularly for those operating in the developing world where standardised laboratories and lab equipment are not available, or where there is no easy access to costly antibodies.
Collibio will allow us to provide whole slide images to pathologists located anywhere in the world thus improving our efficiency and interoperability, not to mention the cost saving benefits that it also provides."
Alan Hanley, CEO of Pixcelldata said, "We are delighted to work with eX-Path and Dr. Marius Nap. Dr. Nap is a highly-respected pioneer in the field of digital pathology and this partnership will see both of our companies working in tandem for the benefit of our mutual clients, to ensure that they gain the vast improvements available through modern digital imaging solutions."
Pixcelldata is a leading innovator of software solutions for the digital pathology domain. The company was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 2010. Pixcelldata brings a fresh approach to the digital pathology market delivering next generation solutions and work closely with their customers to provide solutions which fit seamlessly into their everyday workflows.
