Custom Programming

custom programming flow cAs part of our commitment to excellence in lab imaging, MIS offers custom software development services to our clients. Many laboratories use our software development skills to implement specific customizations of imaging features or workflow, to meet special user needs.  We can also take client specifications to create new programs from the ground up as a software solution to a lab’s imaging, analysis, or communication needs.  If your interested in discussing a unique application, just Contact Us and we’ll respond promptly.

If your laboratory has a need for software or systems integration of hardware and software that is not satisfied by an off-the-shelf product, we can build it for you! In some cases this might mean a slight alteration or addition to our comprehensive PAX-it software features, and in other cases it might mean building a whole new application from scratch, including custom hardware, integrated off-the-shelf products, and custom programming for controlling the system. In any case we just need a specification of the desired goal, and we will be glad to quote a competitively priced package that includes a detailed proposal for your approval, the code-writing itself, and testing.
