Track Vials Through an Automated Clinical Laboratory
Track Vials Through an Automated Clinical Laboratory

Banner Engineering's Q12 miniature self-contained sensor detects pucks that hold vials as they move through an automated clinical laboratory. Poor performing sensors could inadvertently cause errors and slow down the throughput of the lab. The Q12 is a good fit for clinical laboratories because it is small and can fit into confined spaces without affecting results. The fixed field sensor can also detect pucks regardless of color.

Machine Illumination for Inspection and Testing Procedures
Machine Illumination for Inspection and Testing Procedures

Machine lighting inside of automated clinical labs helps operators see and access the samples and equipment being used inside. These types of environments can be difficult on traditional lights because of the reagents and chemicals used during testing and cleaning. The WLS28-2 is rated IP69K to withstand chemicals and washdowns.

Machine Status Indication in Automated Clinical Laboratories
Machine Status Indication in Automated Clinical Laboratories

Clinical labs need to process samples quickly to keep throughput high and any lag during testing procedures would disrupt workflow. LED lightings, such as the K50L2, works as machine status indication so that the lab operators can process fix errors, handle samples, and collect results in a timely manner.

LED Lights Used To Inspect Liquid Pharmaceuticals [Success Story]
LED Lights Used To Inspect Liquid Pharmaceuticals [Success Story]

One global provider of healthcare products had been using vision machines to detect particulates in their liquid pharmaceuticals. When the machines were no longer able to detect contaminants to the required percentage level, the company began using human visual inspections. Since many of the particulates are extremely minute, the company needed to install bright and highly uniform illumination in their work stations so operators could effectively verify the quality of products.
