Transparent Inline Inspection Station for LabDisks in Medical Technology

Quality assurance of transparent cartridges with AI

Using AI software, high precision manufactured, transparent plastic cartridges can be recorded in the production cycle with an innovative inspection station from senswork and reliably evaluated. This technology enables 100% quality assurance of LabDisks or Lab-on-a-Chip designs in the production cycle. This is a sensation in medical technology.

Inspection with the aid of the AI inspection station takes place inline during production at the manufacturer. A high-speed digital microscope captures the 150 mm wide transparent LabDisks with a resolution of 10 micrometers. The AI software senswork Neuralyze® detects and distinguishes liquids, delaminations and the position of particles and dust on this image data. At the same time, the process time is 80% less than the cycle time of the preceding sealing process. With this high speed, LabDisks can be checked for quality directly in the production process.

The detection and evaluation of transparent surfaces with the smallest qualitative deviations was previously considered a major challenge. With senswork's innovative technology, coping with such inspection situations becomes state of the art.

senswork has been using the possibilities of artificial intelligence for innovative image evaluation processes for many years. In the Munich Innovation Lab, we dedicate ourselves to this core competence by further developing computer vision with neural networks for manufacturing automation and other industrial applications.

An innovative senswork test station records the quality and condition of microstructures of the high-precision transparent in vitro diagnostic cartridges and reliably evaluates them with the AI software Neuralyze® by senswork.


"Both the speed and the flexibility of the AI error assessment would not be conceivable without the outstanding imaging quality that we achieve in our system. The optimal meshing of all technological aspects of the image processing system is the result of senswork's many years of experience with complex machine vision setups" states Markus Schatzl, director at senswork’s Innovation Lab.
