Analysis of top exhibitors at USCAP 2009

You can get a quantitative idea of the rise of digital pathology (DP) by reviewing the exhibitor floor plan at the upcoming USCAP meeting in Boston. Among the top exhibitors are the usual vendors (e.g., Dako and Ventana) but also newcomers. Here is the list:

(40' by 40'): Ventana, Dako North America, BioCare Medical;
(40' by 30'): BioImagene;
(30' by 20'): CAP, Sakura Finetek;
(20' by 20'): Aperio Technologies, Biogenex, Genzyme Genetics, ThermoScientific

BioImagene will also host an exhibitor seminar and is apparently the only DP company to do so.

Clearly a large investment in visibility is being made by DP companies in this last show without a large Omnyx or Siemens or Philips presence. Expect more square feet dedicated to digital pathology at future meetings.
