Telepathology Services (WUPax)

What is WUPax?

WUPax is a web-based telepathology platform for surgical pathology diagnosis which provides institutions with full telemedicine capabilities. Clients can easily submit orders, upload digital image files with associated pertinent patient history and demographic information, track the status of cases, and generate a PDF of the surgical pathology report in a HIPAA compliant and CAP validated infrastructure.

WUPax is integrated into the laboratory information system (LIS), is fully searchable and is designed to be viewer agnostic. It is a plug-and-play solution for laboratories that desire out-of-the-box functionality with a wide variety of WSI platforms, image stitching cameras and clients.

Tried and tested in real-time clinical environment

WUPax has been implemented in several routine patient-care settings locally and remotely-most notably in support of telepathology-based real-time surgical pathology diagnosis of donor organ biopsies from remote sites.
