Improving Lab Automation and IVD Applications with Deep Learning Vision Software

In devices performing everything from simple diagnostic tests to sophisticated DNA analysis, Deep Learning Vision helps to improve efficiency and increase throughput and can help to diagnose medical images without the need of human intervention. Presented applications are:

  • Appearance based blood sample tube classification
  • Quality inspection of centrifuged blood samples
