Softability & Thermo Fisher Scientific at HUS VR Lab

Softability is showcasing at HUS VR Lab a demo application that was made for Thermo Fisher Scientific to operate Varioskan™ LUX multimode microplate reader through a virtual user interface with Microsoft HoloLens device.

Varioskan LUX microplate reader device is designed for research use in bioscience and research loboratories. Varioskan LUX analyzes samples by measuring wavelengths with different technologies (e.g. absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence) and is used for example in drug development research, cell research, bacterial measurement, DNA/RNA measurement, protein assays and antibody assays.

The HoloLens demo application provides a virtual user interface (UI) to operate Varioskan LUX device and display the results. The user, wearing HoloLens, can use the device with gestures and choose the right assay (e.g. ELISA or DNA-assay). Varioskan LUX device measures and analyzes the results in compliance with the selected protocol. When the assay is completed the HoloLens application displays the results on a virtual 3D microplate as a multicolored graphical hologram. The communication between the Varioskan LUX and HoloLens happens with gestures over the Wi-Fi conneciton.
