In-vitro Diagnostic Instrument Development

Developing an IVD systems requires designing and developing both the hardware and the consumable.  Wi possesses extensive experience developing complete IVD systems that incorporate complex electro-mechanical and optical hardware.  Placing the development of both hardware and consumable at one location assures a seamless integration at the hardware-consumable interface.  The hardware will actuate blisters, valves, mixers, and ultimately read or detect the results of the assay.  The Wi program approach iterates on machine design, progressing from initial rapid prototype implementations through verified Alpha and Beta production units.
