The interface, now in development at both companies, is designed to optimize workflow and facilitate access of digital slide images and case data between the two systems.

"As a leading provider of anatomic pathology LIS solutions, IMPAC is excited to be working with Aperio to provide this solution to the AP community. It reinforces our commitment to integrate proven new technologies with PowerPath."
