Early access to exciting new features

Our first beta sign-up period ran from Feb 1, 2020 – Feb 29, 2020. All available seats are filled and we’re currently in the process of gathering feedback from participants.

Our next wave of beta-testing is scheduled to take place in May 2020. Want to enroll? Send an email to beta@pathomation.com and we’ll see if you quality.

Included products

Inclusion of select products depends on our development roadmap.

Our first beta program in February 2020 included the following products: PMA.core, PMA.view, and PMA.slidebox.

A second beta program is scheduled for mid-2020 and will focus on PMA.studio.


If you’re interested in participating in our beta-program, there is a rigorous selection procedure to follow. Physical tests follow and are brutal. Military recruits prefer boot camp to signing up for Pathomation’s beta program…

Nah, just kidding.

If you’re interested in participating in our beta-program, please send an email to beta@pathomation.com briefly describing your background and why you’re interested in our software. We’ll then be in touch with you as soon as possible.

If you missed our beta-program, you can still try out our software through our sandbox environment.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why should I care about Pathomation’s beta program?

Because Pathomation supports more file formats than any other vendor in the digital pathology pathology space, and our new 2.0 platform is more powerful than ever.

Not to toot our own horn too much, but earlier alpha-testing have had users utter words like “disruptive” and “game changing”

Do I need to provide any (hardware) infrastructure of my own?

No. Participating in the beta means that we will configure a cordoned-off environment for you in which you can try out our wares without any chance of distracting or breaking other users’ experiences.

Can I try the beta with my own slides?


How am I going to transfer my slides to Pathomation?

We prefer that you give PMA.transfer a try. Your dedicated beta landing page will contain instructions on how to interact with this. If PMA.transfer somehow doesn’t work out for you, we’re happy to help you and and work with you on a one-on-one basis. We set up a dedicated slides@pathomation.com email address for this purpose.

If I’m uploading slides of my own, will others be able to see them?


Will I be given my own account?

Upon enrolling in our beta program, we’ll provide you with instructions of how you can create your own user account in PMA.core and get started experiencing the greatest virtual microscopy software ever conceived (humble brag).

Can we try out your beta-products with multiple people in the same organization?

Please do bring your friends and colleagues. We welcome it! Pathomation’s PMA.core server was developed to facilitate multi-user, simultaneous access, collaborative virtual microscopy and digital pathology workflows. The more the merrier. 

Not sure how to set up organizational content with Pathomation? Contact us and we’ll help you get started after learning more about your use case.

How do I provide feedback?

Email is best: beta@pathomation.com

Do I have to provide feedback? What is expected of me here?

Active participation in our program is appreciated. If we don’t observe any activity from your end within two weeks of signing up for the program, we close down your environment. No bad feelings; just moving on and allocating our resources to who we think is more likely to benefit from them.

After about two months of using our software, we may contact you for a phone or Skype interview asking about your experiences.

In the mean while, bugs you encounter, features you would like to see added, or any others questions and comments you have are welcome at beta@pathomation.com.
