Stainbox + GUI

Laboratory device for blood sample preparation

Sysmex Germany GmbH
Originated in employment with Held + Team, Hamburg

This laboratory device prepares blood samples for a microscopic examination.
An essential requirement was the implementation of a sensitive sequential process structure. In this process the blood samples need to be immersed in different liquids in a specific order. The information on the screen is assisted by various LEDs located on the top panel. The lids open automatically when the user needs to immerse the slide into the next liquid.


The appearance of the Stainbox should seamlessly integrate into the product range of Sysmex. The product design follows the requirements of the corporate product design of Sysmex company that was developed by their in-house design department in Japan.

Stainbox GUI

The display information are directly related to the operating process of the device and guides through the process step by step. Due to the simultaneous development and design of the GUI and hardware, it was possible to ideally adjust them to each other. By that, the operating process could be guided and simplified considerably.
