H&E automation with individual slide staining for enhanced quality, workflow and safety

Improve Lab Workflow

Lean workflow reduces touch points and wait points for improved lab efficiency and turnaround time

Increase Lab Safety

Elimination of xylene and alcohol increases safety for technicians and the environment

Improve Patient Safety

Individual slide staining mitigates cross-contamination, providing greater patient safety

Count on Quality Reproducible Stains

Ready-to-use reagents provide consistent, high-quality stains for confidence in patient diagnosis


VENTANA HE 600 system

Individual slide staining

Fresh reagents on every slide produce consistent, high-quality H&E stains for excellent clarity and enhanced visualization of micro-anatomic detail. Individual slide staining for every patient slide protects against tissue cross-contamination.

Protocol flexibility

The system supports more than 400 different protocols with customization options for optimizing stain intensity to meet pathologists’ preferences.

Reagent management

All reagents are ready to use, with no mixing or dilution needed, so laboratory staff can focus on more value-added activities. The reagents are recyclable, color coded and individually numbered with radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for easy management and error prevention.

Real-time remote monitoring and technical assistance

The VENTANA HE 600 system is equipped with CareGiver automated remote monitoring technology to help maximize uptime and minimize interruptions. This service includes remote software updates, system calibration and training, in addition to providing system information to Roche service experts to expedite troubleshooting.
