Venneos CAN Q Station
Making cellular change visible
Defortec developed in close cooperation with the Stuttgart-based start-up Venneos the revolutionary CAN-Q laboratory instrument that impresses with its easy handling and its compact dimensions. Required for the new product was the decisive improvement in the contacting process.
The novel image system for the analysis of biological cells is based on an innovative measurement approach in order to make cellular changes electronically and not as usual optically visible. The non-marking and non-invasive observation of cells is the most gentle and natural way to analyze them. This applies in particular to the fields of tumor biology, immunology and pharmacology as well as pharmaceutical and biotech companies.
The prototype milled out of full aluminum was intensively tested to ensure a smooth assembly and the functional process.
Product development par excellence
First plexiglass prototypes were required to develop and to check the function of the contacting mechanism. Various principles of kinematics were tested inhouse for feasibility and economic efficiency. Great emphasis was placed on an error-free and intuitive operation.

simplify the understanding of design Glossary
Human factors and ergonomics (HF&E) aka comfort design, functional design, and user-friendly systems, is a multidisciplinary field incorporating contributions from psychology, engineering, biomechanics, mechanobiology, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry. In essence it is the study of designing equipment and devices that fit the human body and its cognitive abilities. The two terms "human factors" and "ergonomics" are essentially synonymous.
Human factors and ergonomics is concerned with the "fit" between the user, equipment and their environments. It takes account of the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.
