PathXL’s software enables users to upload, archive, search, share, collaborate, educate, analyse, score and report on huge volumes of pathology data. PathXL has been designed to coexist with a wide range of other applications. Its open and modular architecture, use of standards, adoption of best-in-class open source components helps to integrate PathXL easily with other applications so that users can enjoy the benefits of digital pathology as part of their existing workflows. As a web based platform, PathXL can be deployed locally on a customer site or provided as a managed hosted service in the cloud, enabling clients to experience the value of remote digital pathology, without the overhead of managing their own platform or the need for major capital outlay or deployed onsite.
