History of Ventana
In January 2008 Roche acquired Ventana Medical Systems, Inc. This will enable us to move into the fast-growing market for tissue-based diagnostics. It will also contribute to our efforts to develop and commercialize personalized healthcare solutions in oncology formation.
Founded in 1991, this business area was established as Ventana Medical Systems, originally focused on standardizing the preparation and staining of tissue or cells mounted on a glass microscope slide for examination by a pathologist, but evolved quickly to meet the broader demands of today’s laboratories. Innovative instrument and reagent systems are RTD’s mainstay. In addition, it offers broader workflow solutions and patient information management tools.
