Impac to Demonstrate PowerPath(R) Version 9.3 at United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP)

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Impac Software, part of the Elekta Group and leading provider of software solutions for anatomic pathology (AP) laboratories today announced the introduction of PowerPath version 9.3, including new features and interfaces - all to be demonstrated at USCAP conference in Boston, March 9-11, 2009. PowerPath v9.3 includes updates to the Advanced Materials Processing (AMP) module and the Document Management module, as well as new interfaces for digital pathology and diagnostic reference systems.

Advanced Materials Processing (AMP) version 3

The AMP materials tracking solution drives the workflow of a histology lab by tracking materials through the lab - from the receipt and processing of tissue specimens, through the creation and tracking of blocks and slides, to managing specimen discard.

Document Management

Batch processing has been added to this popular feature to further streamline administrative tasks in the lab. Users can now process many documents at once using our bar coding technology. Simply label the documents for the case--then set aside the paperwork, and scan the entire set as a batch when convenient. PowerPath reads the bar code and auto assigns documents to respective PowerPath cases.

Digital Pathology Interfaces

This interface connects PowerPath to the digital pathology system to optimize case workflow.

The interface is bi-directional and keyed from the bar coded slides generated by PowerPath's AMP module. Upon completion of the slide imaging event, slide thumbnails and region of interest images are sent to PowerPath to store with other case data.

Diagnosis Reference Integration

Users may access the experts from the PowerPath case by automatically linking to their PathIQ(R) ImmunoQuery(R) Custom Sync(TM) subscription. With this interface, users may view recommendations for special stains and published study reference materials.

"Impac Software is committed to integrating new technology with PowerPath," says George Rugg, SVP and General Manager of Impac's LIS business unit, "and as an LIS provider we recognize that these systems produce data which must be integrated with other case information. Lab technology is advancing so rapidly that the only way to accomplish this is with frequent releases and easy access to those releases through a streamlined upgrade program. Impac Software does both."

Demonstrations of the new features and interfaces available with PowerPath version 9.3 will be available March 9-11 at the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. PowerPath demonstrations also will be available at the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) Pathology Update 2009 conference, March 13-15, in Sydney Australia and the Lab InfoTech Summit March 16-18 in Las Vegas, Nevada. For additional information, visit Impac booth 726 at USCAP, Impac booth 26 at RCPA, and Impac booth 19 at Lab InfoTech Summit, or visit us online at www.impac.com/pathology.
