Vial Presence Check
Robust machine vision solutions identify the presence of vials
In-vitro diagnostics (IVD) laboratories with highly automated robotic systems encounter frequent failures, resulting in misaligned or absent vials or caps. These automated systems need to integrate an error-proofing tool that not only can confirm the presence of a vial or cap but also detect misalignments and other system failures. Diagnostic device developers require reliable and repeatable machine vision tools to ensure accurate results 100% of the time.
Diagnostic devices rely on the same automation principles as traditional factory automation solutions. To improve accuracy and throughput, developers and laboratory technicians rely on powerful yet easy-to-use tools for rapid feasibility studies, dependable platforms for testing ideas, and control over data output. By providing robust tools to identify the presence of vials and detect system malfunctions, Cognex machine vision systems help IVD laboratories achieve quality goals. Machine vision systems also help laboratories avoid machine crashes and the reporting of bad or false diagnostics results.
