PathCentral (, a technology-enabled pathology services company dedicated exclusively to the success of the community pathologist, today announced a strategic alliance with Smart Imaging Technologies Co. The companies made the announcement at the Digital Pathology Conference in Baltimore, under way through Oct. 31 (Booth #10).

Smart Imaging, the developer of Simagis Live® digital slide management software, is known for its slide management servers, image analysis applications and web technologies. Working together, PathCentral and Smart Imaging Technologies will be poised to deliver robust and comprehensive web-based digital pathology solutions for domestic and international markets.

The integration between PathCentral's APLIS and Simagis® digital slide management system provides an end-to-end, web-based digital pathology solution that helps pathology practices leverage the power of cloud computing to increase their productivity, better utilize scanning equipment, gain a competitive edge, and expand business beyond their geographic boundaries.
