Royal Philips Electronics (Netherlands) says it is developing integrated digital solutions for the medical pathology domain.

The company says its goal is to bring the digital switchover benefits from radiology departments to this other area of disease diagnosis. The Philips system comprises a high-throughput pathology slide scanner and high-capacity image storage and viewing system, plus advanced software for feature recognition and analysis.

Philips says it is actively seeking collaborations with companies that specialize in histological stains and staining techniques in order to develop additional image analysis and interpretation software suites.
