ARCEDI

ARCEDI - REDEFINING PRENATAL DIAGNOSIS

ARCEDI is a Danish biotechnology company that develops non-invasive prenatal diagnosis (NIPD) products. The company specializes in developing safe and reliable diagnostic tests for fetal chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down syndrome, without the need for invasive procedures. ARCEDI uses a unique approach to NIPD, which involves analyzing cell-free fetal DNA in maternal blood.

Challenges

The customer, a laboratory using ARCEDI's technology, faced several challenges in automating their blood processing for cell-based non-invasive prenatal diagnosis. They needed help with automation and robotics, as well as insights into what components were needed to process a higher volume of samples. The company had been struggling with having to rely on a high degree of manual labor, which resulted in an inefficient and error-prone process. They needed a solution that would increase productivity, decrease error rates, and reduce labor costs.

Solution

DIS/CREADIS, was brought in to help solve ARCEDI’s production challenges. The DIS/CREADIS team developed a fully automated concept with a machine capable of processing the required volume of samples. Additionally, two robots were installed to reduce manual work and enable 24-hour operation. The system was designed to handle different types of samples, such as maternal plasma, serum, and whole blood, and could be customized according to ACREDI's specific needs.

Benefits

The implementation of the automated process has resulted in several benefits for the customer. Now that the system is fully automated there is no need for human interaction during the process, reducing the risk of errors. The processing volume has increased from 8 to 24 samples in an eight-hour shift, resulting in a significant increase in productivity. The new system has also enabled ARCEDI to handle a higher volume of samples without the need for additional labor, reducing labor costs. The automated process has secured a stable output, ensuring reliable and accurate results.

Why DIS/CREADIS

DIS/CREADIS was chosen for this project due to our automation and robotics expertise. DIS/CREADIS spent time to thoroughly understand ACREDI’s needs and challenges and worked closely with them throughout the project to ensure successful implementation.

TIB Molbiol – ACCELERATING COVID-19 TESTING: TIB MOLBIOL TEAMS UP WITH DIS/CREADIS TO DEVELOP AUTOMATED PCR TEST MACHINE WITH RESULTS IN LESS THAN ONE HOUR

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, governments worldwide have invested enormous resources in scaling up their testing capacity. PCR testing is the most reliable test method, but it can take several hours to a few days to deliver test results, leaving a window in which infection may spread. Olfert Landt, CEO of TIB Molbiol, identified the need for a shorter lead time and came up with the idea to develop a continuous PCR test machine. Samples are not moved through the testing process in batches as is normally done, but one by one, reducing the total testing time significantly.

GROULEFF DK – PRECISION AND INNOVATION IN MEDICAL EQUIPMENT

Grouleff DK specializes in developing and producing medical equipment and was tasked with delivering a specially designed chair and bed for a MEG (magnetoencephalography) scanner. A MEG scanner maps the magnetic signals of a brain and requires a stable and uninterrupted scan to produce accurate images. Grouleff DK was approached by an English customer to create a chair and a bed in anti-magnetic materials with fine-mechanical solutions to fit their customer’s MEG scanner precisely. As this was the first time Grouleff DK had created a chair and a bed for a MEG scanner, they required external resources to complete the task and turned to DIS/CREADIS for assistance.

ADVALIGHT – REVITALIZING MEDICAL LASER TECHNOLOGY

Advalight is a Danish company that specializes in the development and manufacturing of medical laser devices. The company was established as a research project at DTU (Technical University of Denmark) 10 years ago, with a focus on laser sources. Since then, Advalight has grown into a company that produces laser devices for treating skin diseases and skin disorders such as chronic redness, spider veins, scars, moles, and acne. Advalight’s medical laser devices use yellow (589nm) and infrared (1319nm) laser lights, which are more effective in treating skin problems compared to other lasers. Advalight’s laser is built on solids (crystals) instead of on gas or coloring, which makes it less expensive, more reliable, and more stable than other medical yellow lasers on the market.

ABENA– ADVANCING INCONTINENCE CARE

ABENA Group, an international manufacturer of healthcare products, has developed a digital incontinence product called ABENA Nova. The product is designed to provide a better quality of life for both incontinence product users and healthcare professionals. The ABENA incontinence diaper is no ordinary diaper. It features sensors and a small clip that transfers data via Bluetooth and 4G networks to the WetSens Monitor app, which is installed on the caregivers’ mobile devices. Caregivers can easily and quickly monitor the diaper’s moisture status and be notified if it needs changing. The product saves resources and minimizes user discomfort. In addition, caregivers can also use the data collected to monitor the users’ fluid levels. However, the innovative product could not be manufactured at the ABENA production facilities, which led the company to seek a skilled engineering consulting partner to assist in completing the necessary upgrades.
