Medical Device Project – BIOSYSTEMS BA400 Analyzer
The BA400 is a clinical chemistry and turbidimetry analyzer. It is a medical device system that defines the new generation of clinical analyzers and is designed to offer high performance to laboratories looking towards achieving highest efficiency with optimal operative cost. This CASE STUDY is a prime example of how integrated services helped us execute this project with great efficiency and in optimal time.
The project required conceptualization, design and prototyping of the entire structure. And it required us to make the mould and mass produce the intricate plastic rotor that is a key component to the functionality of the device. Our client saw the advantages of the whole product cycle happening in-house in one place, at the VANGEST Industrial Complex, where each phase is handled by a dedicated team.
DEVELOPMENT & ENGENEERING
Efficiency is Key
In any product cycle, each phase should seamlessly transition into the other in order to have optimal execution of the product.
By working in an integrated services structure, the workflow is more efficient which saves time and makes the process more cost effective.
Our Industrial complex has over 300 experts working in dedicated teams of each phase of the product cycle – Design & Engineering, Rapid Prototyping, Mould Manufacturing and Injection Moulding.
It all comes together to serve our clients with efficiency and expert know-how in order to execute with accuracy and reliability.
1. Design , Engineering & Prototyping
Working in close collaboration with BIOSYSTEMS, our in-house industrial design team conceptualized the design of the analyzer to improve the device’s aesthetic appeal. At the same time, the team had to take consideration of its functionalities and communicate a strong visual to articulate the device’s reliability.
In order to verify the design and functionality of the various parts of the machine, we move on to product engineering and prototyping.
In our Rapid Prototyping Centre, we developed silicon moulds for the plastic parts of the structure, and the curved glass covering.
Our Rapid Prototyping Centre is adaptable by being able to provide components of different materials so the prototype is as close to the final product as possible.
After all the individual parts have been prototyped, we assemble the device to ensure the design and functionality of each part and thereby we verify the design of the structure as a whole.
2. Mould Manufacturing & Injection Moulding
Since our client knew our capacity for high precision mould making, we simultaneously designed and manufactured a mould for the same project. They required us to make a mould for an intricate rotor part which is a key component for the BA400 device.
For an efficient product cycle, we also mass produced the rotor part in our in-house injection moulding facility. Running in 3 shifts every day on our autonomous systems, production is efficient and is constantly on-going to meet continuous demands.
