Roche launches the VENTANA DP 600 slide scanner for digital pathology

June 28, 2022
The VENTANA DP 600, Roche’s new, high-capacity slide scanner, creates high-resolution, digital images of stained tissue samples that help to diagnose cancer and determine a patient’s treatment.

Roche announced the CE launch of the next-generation VENTANA DP 600 slide scanner (CE-IVD marked), according to a news release.

This high-capacity slide scanner produces excellent image quality of stained histology slides from patient tissue samples, while providing ease-of-use and workflow flexibility for the pathology lab.

The VENTANA DP 600 slide scanner is an important addition to the Roche Digital Pathology portfolio, which provides innovative, high-quality digital solutions that automate tissue diagnostics and empower pathologists to provide faster and more comprehensive diagnostic results to healthcare providers and their patients.

Digital Pathology refers to the digitalization of the traditional pathology workflow starting from slide scanning to visualization to analysis. Digital Pathology is transforming traditional histopathology by improving efficiency, depth of analysis, and opportunity for collaboration in pathology workflows.

For example, once the slide scanner captures and converts stained tissue on glass slides to digital images, these images can be managed, shared, and analyzed by pathologists and can help determine a cancer patient’s treatment.

This new 240-slide scanner, which builds on the success of the 6-slide VENTANA DP 200 scanner, will help anatomic pathology laboratories accelerate the digitalization of their pathology workflow. Both scanners feature the same innovative optics and dynamic focus technology for high-resolution, high-quality color images that accurately reproduce the image quality that pathologists see under microscopes.
