Empower a smooth transition to digital pathology with global strength, experience and support from Roche, and raise the standard of care in the pathology lab.


Virtual Consultation
Connect to specialists or get a second opinion with time-saving efficiency.

Transform labs with virtual consultations and second opinions, and expand practices to – everywhere. Our flexible portfolio can maximise a lab’s efficiency through seamless virtual connections with colleagues and experts, no matter where they are – reducing travel, staffing and shipping costs while decreasing the time required for second opinions, especially for specialised cases.

Image Analysis
Experience confidence with standardised, objective results.

See things differently with Ventana Companion Algorithm image analysis software. Experience confidence with CE and US IVD-validated Companion Algorithm software, and deliver fast, reproducible IHC interpretations with new levels of objective consistency for both local and remote specialists. It’s time to deliver clinically sound, advanced medical insights to patients quickly, so they can spend their time fighting disease, not waiting for answers.

Enrich the learning experience and enhance medical education.

Expand learning possibilities with state-of-the-art access to slide images and materials, and transform medical education and non-clinical collaboration with anytime, anywhere delivery of consistent, interactive materials. Standardise content and eliminate the risks, frustrations and costs of sharing resources such as slide sets and multi-headed microscopes. Develop a collaborative environment for students and pathologists, no matter where they are, and begin the pathology education transformation.
