"Making caTissue faster, easier, and scalable is the main aim of caTissue Plus project. This release goes a long way in achieving that." Srikanth Adiga (CEO, Founder Krishagni)

Krishagni, leader in providing commercial support for caTissue, has now taken caTissue to the next level with its caTissue Plus initiative. "At Krishagni, we are working closely with our clients like Washington University, University of New South Wales, University of Leicester, Johns Hopkins University, Singapore General Health, Thomas Jefferson University, University of Missouri, and so forth to enhance caTissue with new features, faster page loads, and user interface improvements," said Srikanth Adiga, CEO Krishagni Solutions.

This latest release contains major performance enhancements in the Advanced Query module wherein every query is guaranteed to complete in 5 seconds and at most 10 seconds. The User Interface of the Advanced Query module is also vastly improved to make it simple and user friendly. You can now organize your Queries in Folders and share the Folders with other users. In collaboration with University of New South Wales, Krishagni has also developed a HL7 based plugin for Aperio’s Imaging system. With this plugin any institute can integrate image based metadata of biospecimens, and link caTissue with the image repository to quickly view the images. Apart from the above two, there are many other bug fixes and improvements which will simplify the usage of caTissue. Please click here for what's new in caTissue Plus v3.0.
