Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced the launch of the VENTANA DP 200 high-speed slide scanner for digital pathology. Its unique, tray-based design enables no-touch slide processing for reduced workflow errors and produces excellent image quality and reliability.
The VENTANA DP 200 slide scanner provides the pathology lab with image quality and ease of use that sets a new standard for digital pathology, said Ann Costello, Head of Roche Tissue Diagnostics. As more and more labs seek to adopt this important technology, we are proud to create the efficiencies that empower faster and better diagnosis and treatment of cancer. This launch is a major milestone in our ongoing commitment to the advancement of patient care through digital pathology and provides a foundation for a future menu of Roche image analysis algorithms.
Additional features of the VENTANA DP 200 include scan speed of less than 49 seconds for 15-by-15 millimeter scan area, and the application of a unique International Color Consortium (ICC) color profile to each image to ensure that the digital image closely matches colors observed under a microscope.
