Awards: GOOD DESIGN IDA Silver
Project Description: Medical & Laboratory

Design Team: Cesaroni Design & Affinity Biosensors

LifeScale® is an award winning, unique and automated medical device for rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Used in both microbiology research and in clinical laboratory environments, this medical device yields results in under three hours instead of what previously took days to complete. The enclosure was functionally designed to keep the liquid samples visible with the lids closed and to take up as little bench space as possible. The aesthetic challenge included utilizing low volume manufacturing processes to produce a high-perceived value for a medical/scientific product. The design details include a chamfer that wraps around the top edge of the unit, which reflects the path that individual cells take around the sensor inside. The dual lids on the unit are electronically locked during testing. Special hinges that apply torque help lift the lids with ease when access is needed.
