THE solution for viewing, sharing and studying digital pathology images

Home » Products » Viewers » PathViewer


An interactive visualization, analysis and annotation tool specifically tailored for digital pathology


The modern pathology lab has a "Big Data" challenge – several different pathology systems and scanners with thousands, perhaps even tens of thousands of images, accessed by a variety of visualization and analytic tools. How can you view, share, discuss or possibly annotate the images — securely and rapidly — and also have a flexible, customizable, open system that you could adapt to your own needs?

Glencoe Software has the solution. PathViewer offers proven, scalable, secure image viewing, annotation and integrated analysis — tailored for digital pathology. You get the best of our products in one place. Our Bio-Formats Digital Pathology module enables access to data from all major slide scanners and imaging systems. OMERO Plus stores all image and metadata in a secure, central repository and database, accessible via the Web or your favorite viewer or analysis tool.

Want to write your own plugins, analysis tools or client applications tailored exactly to your workflow? Java, C++, Python and MATLAB® are all supported.

Data can be annotated, securely shared with a colleague or published, all with a single click. So, now it’s easy to access, view, share or analyze digital pathology images from anywhere, over secure, enterprise connections and even connect with electronic laboratory notebooks or laboratory information management systems.

Designed for Digital Pathology


PathViewer has been designed specifically with your current workflow in mind—whether you are a pathologist, researcher, collaborator or an IT Manager. We worked hard to develop a product that would be at home in a pharmaceutical corporation, contract research organization, Biotech company or an academic lab.

Our solution supports the drug development process by enabling pathologists to more efficiently illustrate, communicate, and collaborate on crucial findings in their studies. We connect to your existing system and workflow. For the end user, its intuitive interface makes working with digital pathology images easy and straightforward.

Our software ensures that, regardless of the scanner used to acquire your images, the data format or even location—you are able to visualize, annotate, share and even manage the storage of your digital pathology images—all in a secure, easy to use application.


How It Works

OMERO Plus and the Bio-Formats module are designed to improve the handling of complex, multi-dimensional datasets. Based around OMERO.fs, all image data are stored in their original format, eliminating data duplication and allowing access by third party tools. File integrity is checked at upload, giving you extra confidence that your files are safely stored and then available for viewing and sharing.
