A new technology by Senswork allows the so-called LabDisks or Lab-on-a-Chip designs used in medical technology to be tested in the production cycle. The AI-based method was developed as part of the ControlPlus research project, which also involved research and development service provider Hahn-Schickard, which develops test carriers. A highspeed microscope captures the transparent cartridges, which are approximately 150mm in diameter, inline with a resolution of 10µm. The AI software Neuralyze independently detects the structures and dimensions of the fluidic channels on it and distinguishes liquids, delaminations, and the position of particles and dust.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
