Roche Launches uPath Enterprise Digital Pathology Software

Personalized workflow software allows pathologists to move seamlessly between a variety of stains in a single view

Roche Launches uPath Enterprise Digital Pathology Software

January 24, 2019 — Roche announced the launch of its new uPath enterprise software for digital pathology. The software improves on the previous version, known as Ventana Virtuoso, with new personalization capabilities for pathology workflows.

uPath enhances the user experience by drastically decreasing image rendering times, integrating automated image analysis and improving efficiency by enabling an improved workflow for sharing cases between pathologists.

To aid in the development of uPath software, Roche acquired the Leeds Virtual Microscope (LVM) technology from the University of Leeds, U.K., and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, U.K. With this technology, pathologists can diagnose a patient case more quickly by viewing all slides in a case in a single seamless view, as well as viewing all available patient information simultaneously. Multiple slides appear on a canvas-like display, enabling pathologists to move seamlessly between hematoxylin and eosin (H&E), immunohistochemistry (IHC) and special stains in a single view, which is not possible with a standard microscope. The LVM technology operates on displays that range from laptops to ultra-high definition Powerwalls.

The uPath software offers pathologists, histotechnicians and administrators a universal platform to manage all aspects of the pathology workflow through diagnosis. With the customization offered through uPath software's highly configurable interface and scalability, requesting second opinions and sharing cases take a fraction of the time that has traditionally been required, with no geographical limitations as compared to glass slides.

The design of the uPath software integrates imaging and analysis tools for more efficient workflow. It enables patient case assignment and seamless access to share and/or request a second opinion, all on a single screen. Analyses, both automated and manual, and slide markups are easily managed in uPath's multi-slide viewer, while reporting features allow pathologists to aggregate notes, measurements and slide scoring into easy-to-share images or PDFs. This launch follows the March 2018 release of the Ventana DP 200 slide scanner.
