Digital pathology solution

Empowering precision diagnosis - paving the way for personalized care

Personalized 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 personalized healthcare.

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

Enhance patient care and maximize 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. 

VENTANA® slide scanners1 for whole slide imaging

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

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

Roche uPath digital pathology workflow software1

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 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.

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