Unlock the potential of the VENTANA DP 200 slide scanner


  • High-speed scanning: Scans at 20x magnification in ~36 seconds and at 40x magnification in ~73 seconds (15mmx15mm AOIs)
  • No slide handling: Slides are loaded and scanned using a tray-based system, which eliminates slide-handling errors and improves reliability
  • High-quality images: Produces high-resolution digital images for various tissue types, including challenging slides such as frozen sections
  • DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) compatibility: Provides a standardized output file format for interoperability with PACS servers
  • File formats: Output file formats include BIF, TIF, and DICOM
  • Color management: Uses International Color Consortium (ICC) color standard profile generation in every scan
  • Dynamic focus: Tracks tissue depth in real time and uses the data for high resolution slide scanning
  • Calibration: Automatic white balance calibration to ensure consistent image quality


The VENTANA DP 200 slide scanner offers multiple use cases to laboratories embracing digital pathology:

  • Immediate file transfer for earlier collaboration
  • Remote site scanning
  • Digital read for IHC markers
  • Scan a variety of slide types including H&E, IHC, ISH, special stains, cytology and frozen sections

Roche Digital Pathology solution combines innovative hardware, software and uPath whole slide image analysis algorithms including algorithms for HER2 (4B5)*, HER2 Dual ISH*, and PD-L1 (SP263)*, and works in integrated harmony with the full Roche diagnostic portfolio for an end-to-end experience.

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

The Roche Digital Pathology Open Environment

With the acceleration of immunotherapies and the development of more complex assays, Roche is committed to an open environment for digital pathology. Roche encourages the development of reliable image analysis algorithms that can provide pathologists with tools to improve efficiency and precision for diagnosis. To that end, Roche is making the specifications of the Roche proprietary BIF file format publicly available.
