We build easy to use, intuitive and flexible
digital products for pathology


Pathcore was founded by physicists, engineers, computer scientists after gaining extensive first-hand experience with the limitations of digital pathology systems. We set out to innovate at the crossroads of pathology and computation, to create comprehensive digital solutions that allow pathologists to fully embrace the power of digital pathology with minimal effort.

We build state-of-the-art data management platforms for whole slide imaging that integrate with 3rd party products to deliver seamless workflows for teaching, research, remote IOC and second opinion consults.

We believe in pushing the boundaries of what exists and reimagining the future.
