Enabling full digitization of your pathology laboratory

The VENTANA DP 600 slide scanner is a significant addition to the Roche Digital Pathology portfolio as it will enable pathology laboratories to perform high volume and high quality scanning necessary for full digitization of their pathology workflow with Roche as the partner of choice.

As intuitive as it is innovative

High capacity scanner maximizes walkaway time

Lean workflow through automatic start and continuous loading of up to 40 trays of to keep up with slide volume without interrupting scanning.

Ease of use and workflow flexibility

Intuitive design and minimalistic user-interface streamline workflows while configurable options meet specific laboratory needs.

High image quality and reliable performance

The tray-based system eliminates slide-handling errors such as breakage and loss of slides, and improves reliability.

Dynamic focus technology and innovative optics create high quality images with color reproduction that maps to glass slides as seen under microscopes.

What makes VENTANA scanners robust and reliable?

VENTANA slide scanners use tray-based systems engineered with minimal moving parts. The slides move through the system on the tray without interference by a robotic mechanism, allowing for a high quality scan even if the slides are wet, frozen, or if cover slips are slightly off center. The tray-based system eliminates slide-handling errors such as breakage and loss of slides.

To ensure a reliable and consistent image, the scanners automatically perform a white balance calibration which occurs periodically in the background when scanning is in progress. Furthermore, VENTANA scanners offer a Calibrations and Diagnostics Utility. These built-in diagnostics offer periodic reminders for the user to check the health of their slide scanner.

VENTANA slide scanners offer the peace of mind of a reliable scan, from efficient tray loading to the final high quality whole slide image.
