An integrated cockpit for digital pathology

Whether you’re looking to annotate slides or integrate distributed heterogeneous databases with your slides, PIMS for Life Sciences ( PIMSLS ) is a comprehensive imaging cockpit for life science researchers.

PIMSLS hosts a slew of innovative features:


PMSLS comes with an Annotations panel where you can import/export, review and manage annotations for specific slides.  You can draw your own annotations of different shapes. You can then export your annotations to a number of popular formats.

Data management

Digital pathology involves more than just whole slide images. Oftentimes supplemental data is available in external data stores. These data stores can be consulted in addition to the image data itself. We call it “integrated pathology”


In complex workflows with large sets of images, searching is of paramount importance. PIMSLS, offers you intuitive advanced search options, to quickly look through your image repository.

Manage your content in multiple locations simultaneously

Whether you have multiple instances of PMA.core around your organization, or are looking to compare slides with the hard disk that you just received from a colleague, consider that:

  • PIMSLS can connect to multiple instances of PMA.core at the same time.
  • PIMSLS can dynamically connect to any other PMA.core instance that’s not configured during setup.
