Device development – Automation of laboratory processes

The automation of laboratory processes in the areas chemistry, bio-pharmaceuticals, food processing industry as well as medicine presents the core competence of device development. HELVETING supports your enterprise to achieve the demanded goals.

The partially complex and delicate laboratory processes require a systematic approach. The analysis of the system requirements and the derivation of a respective system design draft are important in an initialisation phase. On the level of subsystems, the interdisciplinary teams are capable to deduce a specification from the analysis and the draft phase. The development of components is oriented to the manufacturability and the parts costs. The system integration and the verification of the subsystems are an inherent part of device development.

A project is usually finished for us after the acceptance tests that are defined together with your company.


  • System and subsystem requirements (Acquisition and analysis of the requirements in a requirement specification, evaluation of solution approaches and technologies, technical and commercial feasibility assessments)
  • Planning (Planning of the project phases, milestones, costs (Product manufacturing costs, development costs), project organisation, tools, communication channels, documentation and configuration management)
  • Conception (Solution variants and rough conception of the desired solution)
  • Detail specification and development of the test plan
  • Quality assurance (Risk management for the identification of project and product risks and respective minimising measures, project controlling for verification of goal attainment with respect to costs, deadline and resources, project controlling instruments as project reporting, project manual, project audits)
  • Production engineering (Industrialisation and market entrance)
