DNA Electronics (DNAe), the inventors of semiconductor-based next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology, is developing a revolutionary new platform that enables NGS-based diagnostic capability in an easy to use, cartridge-based system. This system delivers clinically relevant, actionable results directly from clinical specimens in a matter of hours. DNAe semiconductor technology generates vast amounts of raw data that needs to be preprocessed in real-time and analyzed using machine learning algorithms in semi-real-time fashion.
WizzDev provided DNAe with software to control DNA sequencing instruments and manage large amounts of data. The program controls hardware components eg. valves, pumps, mixers and data collection. It also comes with a bespoke graphical user interface (GUI) that enables user-friendly management of the entire data acquisition and download process. Therefore, the software allowed DNAe conducting research and experiments with their instruments. Moreover, large amounts of data could be efficiently stored, visualized and later on analyzed offline.
Plastometrex scientists team, originating from the University of Cambridge has a long background in materials science. They invented a method to measure the material’s mechanical properties from indentation test data. Now, a fully integrated and automated instrument to perform the bespoke indentation test is being developed together with Wizzdev.
Wizzdev’s contribution involves programming the hardware components and developing software that will provide a user-friendly interface.
A team of Wizzdev engineers also took part in consulting the choice of the electro-mechanical components.
