VISTA, CA – May 15, 2014 — Leica Biosystems, a global leader in anatomic pathology workflow solutions and automation, announced the launch of Aperio ePathAccess, a cloud-based software solution powered by Dell’s Unified Clinical Archive (UCA) for secure pathology collaboration. Aperio ePathAccess provides direct access to sub-specialty pathologists for secondary case review, allowing 94% faster access to slides and 24/7 security through the UCA solution.
