Wednesday 25th of April 2012
Belfast, Northern Ireland … April 2012
PathXL is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a contract by the University of Copenhagen, the largest institution of research and education in Denmark. The entire Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences will be using PathXL™ Tutor and PathXL™ Test Manager.
The University of Copenhagen currently uses two different scanners and they required a software platform that would work seamlessly with both scanners and would consolidate digital pathology within the institution.
By choosing PathXL the University has future proofed their Digital Pathology Program. If necessary, they can purchase additional scanners and be confident that PathXL will support all the images generated. The PathXL solution also avoids the need for Adobe Flash or any other third party applications that require plugins, ensuring an open platform, accessible to all students. The University will run PathXL on a Windows server platform and the PathXL installation will be integrated into their existing Windows domain, so that users logon to the PathXL system with their existing domain accounts.
The University will use PathXL™ Tutor to create and manage digital slides and other content and to publish online. Instructors will build courses incorporating virtual slides and all media types enabling users to share the widest range of multimedia content. Used by 5,000 students across the University, PathXL™ Tutor will enable students to view their entire course slide set on-line, take exams and access at any time from the University, at home or anywhere in the world.
Niels Werner Mortensen, University of Copenhagen IT Project Manager commented,
“We chose PathXL as we felt it was the only software system on the market that wasn’t aligned to any particular scanners or vendors. Out of all the software we evaluated, PathXL™ Tutor was the best for creating and administering courses with integrated digital pathology. With over 5,000 students who use many different internet browsers and devices, we needed a robust and scalable system. We look forward to a long partnership with PathXL”.
PathXL specialises in web-based software and workflows for Digital Pathology. Its PathXL™ Manager product provides a robust, secure and open web-based platform to enable digital pathology users across all fields to manage, view and collaborate around virtual slides easily and efficiently.
In addition, PathXL provides a range of applications and workflows on top of PathXL™ Manager to deliver specific solutions to pathologists, scientists and students in Education, Research, Clinical and Biobanking settings. PathXL also provides a full range of supporting services, including scanning, hosting, image analysis and consultancy. PathXL operates in the UK, Europe and North America.
