Digital pathology solution

Empowering precision diagnosis - paving the way for personalised care

Personalised healthcare starts with a precision diagnosis. Leveraging Roche’s 125 years’ history of fighting disease and pioneering scientific healthcare advancements, the Roche Digital Pathology solution empowers earlier diagnoses and better, more personalised healthcare.

Built by pathologists, for pathologists, the end-to-end Roche Digital Pathology solution focuses on maximising the pathologists' unique training, skills, and vision.

VENTANA® instrument slide scanners1 for whole slide imaging

High-quality digital pathology images start with a high-quality scan. 

VENTANA® instrument slide scanners offer colour management and built-in calibration, enabling consistent, reproducible images and a low rescan rate.


Roche uPath enterprise software digital pathology workflow1

Enhance the efficiency of your pathology laboratory workflow with connectivity and automation.

Seamlessly enable communication between pathologists and technicians so users can quickly access and engage with exactly the information they need.


Roche uPath enterprise software image analysis algorithms1

An intelligent and insightful digital pathology solution requires image analysis tools that empower pathologists to confidently and objectively assess whole tissue slide images.

Algorithms are embedded in the uPath enterprise software, offering the unique ease of use and efficiency of a fully integrated whole slide analysis solution.

Enhance patient care and maximise pathology workflow efficiency


The Roche Digital Pathology solution is an integrated solution that combines innovative slide scanners, software, and image analysis algorithms, working in integrated harmony with the full Roche diagnostic portfolio. 

Easier colleague collaboration for diagnosis1 and research
  • Collaborative features enable case sharing and remote diagnosis
  • Eliminate travel time for multisite and secondary opinions
