Hørsholm, DK (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg) is an important hot-spot for the adoption of Digital Pathology in routine diagnostics in Europe. Over the last few years, Visiopharm has tested, validated, and implemented a CE IVD-marked Laboratory Information System (LIS) driven image analysis software for automating key aspects of the diagnostic workflow in leading Scandinavian pathology labs. There has simultaneously been a growing interest in these solutions throughout Benelux.
In order to support customers in Benelux, Visiopharm has established a branch office in the Netherlands. Mr. Jan Pijnenburg has been appointed as Sales Director, and will start on October 1, 2014. "We are very impressed with Mr. Jan Pijnenburg, and his deep and profound understanding of the clinical Digital Pathology field, including how it has changed over the recent years. He has a unique background with a practical and educational foundation in pathology, combined with a long and successful track-record at Dako and at Thermo-Fisher. This makes Jan the ideal partner to guide pathology labs safely through the implementation of Digital Pathology efficiently into their workflows, and an important addition to Visiopharm's interdisciplinary team of experts," says Michael Grunkin, CEO of Visiopharm.
"In order for Digital Pathology to become widely accepted and adopted in routine diagnostics it really has to solve two important problems: It has to make pathologists more productive and it must enable pathologists to provide data with a higher quality than is currently possible. Visiopharm has the innovation, vision, and technical capabilities required for accomplishing these aims. Plus, Visiopharm has taken the necessary steps to obtain robust clinical documentation and regulatory clearance for their system. I am excited about the opportunity to help pathologists in Benelux benefit from these new technical advances in Digital Pathology," says Jan Pijnenburg.
