A Computer Vision Application for In Vitro Diagnostics Devices

Andrea Carignano


Giacomo Donzelli

Altran Italy

Software for Computer Vision is often used in embedded systems to support automatic workflow and to providesafety critical functionality.

This presentation will show how one of the world-leading companies for in vitro diagnostic (IVD) solutions, bioMérieux, applied Computer Vision in laboratory instruments and transitioned from using black-box and integrated devices to designing more distributed hardware/software solutions.

Additionally the presentation will provide a case study on how Altran succeeded in defining the tool chain underpinning the entire development, from Computer Vision algorithms design to embedded firmware deployment and testing.

Architectural flexibility and a robust design control approach were fundamental drivers for the project and will facilitate meeting safety and regulatory requirements in bioMérieux’s diagnostics solutions.
