Spirit of Innovation


Challenging conventional thinking and working together to create an innovative, patient-focused culture, we have become a world leader in tissue-based diagnostics. The breakthroughs we have achieved - and those we will achieve - would not be possible without the collaboration, innovation, core beliefs, and mutual respect that fuel our performance-driven culture.

Ventana has an ambitious mission to improve the lives of all patients afflicted with cancer, and that means taking healthcare to the next level. We are intimately involved in developing companion diagnostics and ensuring that targeted therapy is available to all patients.

Make your Mark. Improve Lives.

We believe this slogan encapsulates our value proposition. It’s what makes Ventana different from other employers. We are a dynamic part of a multi-disciplined healthcare company that offers opportunities for professional and personal growth, in a collaborative and stimulating workplace.

We uphold strong cultural beliefs and values, which drive our results and continued motivation to improve patients’ lives.
