“Pathology software and equipment grow in complexity and feature richness every day. This makes it exciting to use these new features but also more challenging to verify they are working properly.

With over 20 years in automated software testing services for pathology departments, we know that better tested systems will result in better quality patient care,” says Jennifer Lyle, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of STS.
