Stop reinventing the wheel / microscope!

Many vendors approach you with a proposition to convert your data to their technology. We don’t think that makes sense.

At Pathomation, we recognize that you already have made significant investments in numerous software applications. So our value proposition is to allow you to take your virtual microscopy data to your existing infrastructure.


What are plugins?

According to Wikipedia, a plugin “is a software component that adds a specific feature to an existing computer program. When a program supports plug-ins, it enables customization“. 

The result is that you can connect from your favorite application to our platform, and use it to bring image content from your original slides into your preferred processing environment.

The advantages for you are:

  • Keep working with your favorite tools of choice, no need to learn new software.
  • No need to convert your original slides into an intermediate slide format
  • There’s a LOT more you can do now!

Specialization means better functionality on both ends. Pathomation keeps focusing of supporting as many file formats as possible (and is not distracted by tangential “let’s also do this, too” projects), and consumers relying on Pathomation no longer need to worry about supporting additional file formats themselves .


Moodle is an open source LMS with a global userbase.


Canvas is a commercial LMS by Instructure.

LTI app

Using a different LMS from the ones listed above? Don’t despair. Our plugins for both are based on the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) paradigm. Supported by almost all advanced LMSs out there; unfortunately we’re not in a position to give an exhaustive overview here ourselves.

Curious how we also support your environment through LTI? Start the conversation right here.

FIJI (ImageJ 64-bit)

FIJI and ImageJ are widely used image analysis software packages. It’s particularly powerful because of its wide range of available plugins. Plugins, open source and supported by NIH, what more do you want?

Why, a proper working plugin to bring in microscopy images, of course!

Adobe PhotoShop

Think beyond pixels. With Photoshop, you can measure distances, count objects, adjust and re-scale histograms… Add powerful macros and you’re serving up IA before you know it.

Now if only there was a way to tell it how to get whole slide image…
