Case Study

Medical slide printer

How we designed a glass printer for medical slides

Next-generation smart slide and cassette printers for the lab

THE BRIEF

Pyramid Innovations came to us for support in bringing to market a printer that can rapidly, accurately and consistently print patients’ details onto glass slides prior to blood samples being placed next to these.

They wanted us to present concepts and go on to create functional prototypes until the design was approved and production ready.

SOLUTION

The challenge here was the level of precision design involved. We handled all mechanical design, 3D modelling and created detailed engineering drawings.

The printer itself used sensors, motors, PCBs, belts and pulleys and its mechanics and electronics were encased in injection moulded plastic.

THE RESULT

Designed to reduce slide handling (and the increased risk of contamination from this) the
printer fits perfectly into the pathology labs workflow.

Why You'll Love Us

We have worked with many great companies over the years and seen some of our designs go on to do great things for our clients. That’s what we’re here for

Adam Stroud CEO, Paxton

It's been a great experience working with the team at Design and Product.

Laurence Kemball-Cook CEO, Pavegen

D&P were a great help to Pavegen in our early days producing some excellent mechanical designs for us.

Mark Exley Head of Design, LapSafe

An excellent design that gives us everything we require and need. Thanks guys!
