Roche Holding AG said it launched its high-speed slide scanner for digital pathology.
Roche said Ventana DP 200 can produce high-quality images from a wide variety of histology samples, special stains, bone marrow, and cytology and frozen tissue sections.
The company said the tray-based design of the scanner enables no-touch slide processing for reduced workflow errors and produces excellent image quality and reliability.
The scanner, which is CE marked by the European Commission for in vitro diagnostic use and is available in the U.S. for research use only, has a scan speed of less than 49 seconds for a scan area of 15-by-15 millimeters.
It also applies a unique color profile to each image to ensure that the digital image closely matches colors observed under a microscope.
