Press release from new company in digital pathology universe, DigiPath, Inc., who announced their launch last week whilst I was on vacation. Interesting partnership. Also, check out their YouTube video demonstrating their iPad app for viewing digislides. (Note: I have no financial, personal or spiritual relationship with this company!)
