With the surge in cancer caseloads, histology labs are burdened with repetitive and manual tasks, challenged to produce timely and consistent results to pathologists, and then to the physicians and their patients. 

Automated IHC/ISH slide staining solutions play a crucial role in enhancing workflow efficiency in the field of histopathology. Roche’s innovations in advanced staining enable timely, actionable insights with standardized, fully automated instruments that free up resources, reduce labor costs, and allow results faster to the clinician and patient.

Leveraging the success of the BenchMark series of IHC/ISH advance staining platforms, the BenchMark ULTRA PLUS system is the newest platform with proven technology to deliver an enhanced lab experience. 

The quality you can count on, PLUS

  • New integrated communication allowing streamlined data management and inventory tracking

  • New remote access enabling workflow efficiency away from the instrument 

  • New slide drawer design mitigates fluid ingress and egress resulting in continuous and highly-reliable drawer performance

  • New proprietary waste management solution meeting most stringent municipality requirements for nonhazardous waste

  • New light notifications signaling instrument status across the lab

Key benefits:

  • Reduced touchpoints and turnaround time

  • Consistent stain quality

  • Enhanced traceability with Unique Slide Identifier 

The Benchmark ULTRA System is designed to improve workflow, laboratory efficiency and standardization of tissue diagnostic testing. This innovation enables consistent and quality staining on every system, anywhere in the world. 

  • Fully-automated immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization slide staining, including IHC, ISH, SISH, immunofluorescence, multiparameter IHC staining (dual, triple), counter stain and titration 

  • 30 independent slide drawers and single-piece workflow

  • Access bulk reagents and remove waste without process interruption

  • 250+ ready-to-use assays

  • Ensure uniform staining through individual slide heaters, liquid coverslip and air vortex mixers 

The DISCOVERY ULTRA System is a research instrument designed for scientists and research professionals who demand more than what conventional immunohistochemistry (IHC) and in situ hybridization (ISH) research methods has to offer. It supports multiplexing using a combination of IHC, DNA/RNA/mRNA ISH or IF. 

Highest level of protocol flexibility for the most challenging assays

  • 30 individual slide drawers to support various assay types and users

  • Expansive ready-to-use reagents and multiplexing capabilities provides broad detection options

  • Complete protocol control with DISCOVERY DUO Universal Procedure
