Osmetech, an international molecular diagnostics company, approached us to design their eSensor XT-8 molecular diagnostics platforms’ User Interface. The FDA-cleared device produces results in less than 30 minutes detecting multiple genetic markers from a prepared patient sample.
The Osmetech team consisted of about 5 people with different backgrounds/disciplines. The challenge was presenting several options addressing their multiple concerns and ultimately combining their feedback into a clean user interface that provides an easy-to-use graphical, touch screen interface & requires limited operator training.
The esenor XT-8 received a Medical Design Excellence Award for innovative device design in 2009.
