DigiPath, Inc®, a provider of affordable, innovative and reliable digital pathology solutions, and Medica Corporation, a leading medical device designer and manufacturer with FDA and ISO compliant manufacturing facilities, have entered into a distribution agreement allowing DigiPath to assist their digital pathology customers in adopting EasyCell assistant, an affordable and FDA cleared digital hematology solution.

EasyCell assistant uses image-processing and pattern-recognition technology to automatically locate white cells on a blood smear, pre-classify the cells and then present them to a technician for review on an LCD display. EasyCell locates and pre-classifies normal white blood cells, smudge cells, NRBC’s and variant lymphocytes. Images of these cells are then displayed, grouped by cell type, for confirmatory review. 

“Our customers have been asking to augment their digital pathology deployments with automated hematology solutions,” said Eric Stoppenhagen, President of DigiPath,Inc.  “EasyCell assistant complements our existing affordable, innovative, and reliable solution portfolio.”

“DigiPath’s success in promoting digital pathology adoption will be extended by complementing their product offering with an affordable hematology solution.  I am delighted to have DigiPath as a distribution partner for EasyCell assistant,” stated Robert H. Hagopian, President of Medica Corporation.
