Sunquest Information Systems has acquired the PowerPath anatomic pathology information system from Sweden-based Elekta AB for $33 million USD, it was announced this morning in Europe.

Sunquest President and CEO Richard Atkin said of the acquisition, “Sunquest’s commitment to Anatomic Pathology and serving the pathologist has created a natural fit for PowerPath within the Sunquest solution suite. Together, we will have an increased critical mass and expertise to meet the needs of the pathologist in this important and growing market. I am excited to welcome the PowerPath customers into the Sunquest family.”

Elekta, which markets oncology solutions, acquired PowerPath along with IMPAC Medical Systems in 2005. The product was previously sold by IMPATH and Tamtron.

Elekta President and CEO Tomas Puusepp said, “PowerPath is clearly a leading brand in its sector with an impressive customer list of prestigious institutions. However, the synergies between PowerPath and Elekta have been limited and we expect that PowerPath will have good prospects with Sunquest, given their more complementary business"”

PowerPath is supported by 44 US-based employees. Elekta reports that it generates annual revenue of $12 million and is used by more than 450 facilities worldwide that offer surgical pathology, dermatopathology, cytology, and autopsy services.

  1. “I expect high demand, reinforcing the obvious – the country’s economic suffering is not universally shared as many folks stand in unemployment and food bank lines, while others clamor in similarly long lines to plunk down cash to replace their perfectly workable cell phones with cooler ones.”

    The sad thing is that most people in the unemployment line and food bank line, have cell phones, paid television services, game systems, and live in places that average larger than most anywhere else in the world. Poverty is a relative term, and too many Americans feel “ENTITLED” to a posh lifestyle. We provide all the tools a government can provide to ensure success for everyone: healthcare, education, food assistance, etc. What the government can’t provide is work ethic, personal responsibility and a solid, nurturing, loving home life. Until our citizens embrace these traits, and stop being jealous of the success of those that have those traits and attempt to take the fruits of their labor, we will continue to languish. The mere thought that suffering should be mutually shared is laughable. OPPORTUNITY is what should be mutually shared, and it’s dang close to being equal in America. Many have traded in their idea that you can be anything you want to be, for the fallacy that is “social justice”. I’m sure glad our grandparents didn’t complain as much as many today do.
