We live in a connected world, where vertical data-silos unfortunately are still much too frequent.
With our PMA.vue and PMA.studio products, we want to help you integrate disparate information sources, and bring them together in a single harmonized interface.
With PMA.vue, you can integrate virtual slides (find out what makes these data so unique from other imaging data from any number of slide scanners into a single user interface.
You get tree-based navigation on top of your slide repositories (organized through a single PMA.core back-end tile server).
Not only can you connect to data within your own organization, PMA.vue also makes it easy to reach out to external parties and connect other to you in return. PMA.vue offers many sharing features, and comes with built-in snapshot capabilities to prepare manuscripts and other publications.
PMA.studio adds connectivity where PMA.vue stops.
Meta-data is important to describe and annotate data. When configured properly in PMA.core, PMA.studio visualizes these accordingly and can be used as a front-end for interactive data capture from end-users.
Speaking of annotations: with PMA.studio you have the option to integrate data-layers and overlays from different image analysis suites. You can run a proprietary plugin in QuPath and another one in Fiji, and then visualize both results in PMA.studio to assess which implementation is best suited based on different conditions.
