“In a market that is regularly exposed to new commerce, medical device manufacturers need to revamp and update their products to suit the season’s requirements,” says Teijo Fabritius, CEO of Ginolis, as he touches upon how innovation and the rapid advancement of technologies are transforming the medical device market. Having spent more than two decades in various leadership roles, Fabritius knows what it takes for the companies fairly entrenched in the medical device space to become flexible, limber, and able to roll with the tides of change. With a vision to provide effective healthcare to patients across the globe and eliminate manual intensive process in the diagnostic industry, Fabritius and his team at Ginolis provide unique and innovative automation solutions for precision liquid handling and micro assembly to ensure high product quality in the medical device industry. The company offers modular automation platforms with extensive solutions ranging from standard products to customized systems. At the industry leaps to digital services, Ginolis’ automated production systems keep pace with the change and can be modified effectively to meet customer specifications and provide quality healthcare to patients.
Established in 2010, the company’s commitment to revolutionizing the healthcare consumables industry is fueled by its laser focus on high-quality modular desktop automation solutions that utilize machine vision technology and high-precision liquid handling. Ginolis’ service offerings fulfill customer requirements from the development of the product all way to its validation, support the entire process with its resources, encourage feasibility studies, and provide technical support. What sets the company apart from other players in the market is its low exchange time for products, even when they have to incorporate changes into standard solutions to meet customer specifications on a regular basis.
The company’s products, Ginolis Pixie and Lateral Flow Device Assembly, make this reduction in exchange time possible. While the former offers automated optical quality inspection enabling high throughput on any surface, the latter serves as a standard system for the fully automated assembly and packaging of rapid tests.
Ginolis’ product automation solutions use high-quality manufacturing equipment to produce and process medical and diagnostic devices, while its standard automation platforms provide exceptional operation within a compact footprint. In order to operate and control the product automation solutions, Ginolis leverages the Ginger Software Platform. Besides its centralized machine vision and RFID capability, Ginger comes with an easy-to-use graphical user interface that provides process guidance, real-time information, and critical alerts and notifications.
Patents in dispensing, micro-fabrication, and precision robotics have also proved invaluable to Ginolis’ customers. The company has patented the Piezo Motor Bellows (PMB) pump technology and modular automation platforms to enable high precision liquid handling solutions for standard products as well as fully customized systems. Ginolis has developed the compact high-precision, non-contact dispensing and aspirating Cecilia-L platform to facilitate microfluidic chip/cartridge printing, lateral flow membrane striping, and microtiter plate liquid handing. Cecilia-L can have up to four PMB dispensing pumps to ensure smooth and consistent dispensing of fluids and reagents, and delivers precision and accuracy within a compact desktop module. On the other hand, the production and processing of micro-components, diagnostics and medical device products are managed by the company’s modular compact automation platform, Xanthia. This desktop automation platform offers fast, accurate and precise operations using the company’s Intelligent Transfer Unit system.
Together with the Ginger software, sensors, cameras, and a plethora of techniques, each solution provided by Ginolis is equipped with an improved machine vision system for robot guidance, quality inspection, and process control. The company keeps pace with changing market trends by using a limited amount of product-specific components that can be altered as required.
With an extensive global presence, Ginolis aims to shift to the cloud for active maintenance and provide remote monitoring in addition to quality assurance, analytics, and reporting.
