PathXL BioBank Launched at SMi’s Biobanking Conference

| August 3, 2011

Last month i-Path attended SMi’s Biobanking Conference in London and launched a new product, PathXL BioBank.  During the two-day conference a number of thought leaders from around the world made presentations highlighting the exciting work of the biobanking industry.

A biobank is a facility to store and archive biological samples primarily for use in research. With each biobank taking their own approach to set up and operations, it is a dynamic and fast paced environment.  Path XL BioBank allows users to store, track and check in / out tissue samples using a sophisticated web-based interface. Customers have the flexibility to use their own biobanking software whilst incorporating the PathXL image viewer or to use PathXL BioBank as their database and management software with virtual images integrated.

“Moving into the biobanking sector is an exciting step for i-Path, and we were delighted to see PathXL BioBank so well received at the Biobanking Conference.”
Phil Murray, i-Path Executive VP & Sales Director

When a sample is added to the NI Biobank it immediately appears in our online catalogue.
