promega spectrum design

When Promega wanted to perfect state-of-the-art STR analysis for forensic labs with their new Spectrum CE robotic sampling system, StudioRed supported them by taking their new conceptual look forward ensuring it signaled a fresh design while still respecting Promega’s lineage, and while encompassing Promega’s new automated technology in a housing design that was easy to use, easy to assemble, and easy to service.


StudioRed’s Engineering Team developed a custom, cam-action door hinge for maximum visual and physical access with a neutral lifting weight and stay open features. Custom illuminated functional features like the loading sections door handle glow to indicate run status. A custom, effective thermal chamber with unique latching system was developed as well.

StudioRed’s shop produced the first prototype housings and worked to ensure that the design would move smoothly into production. Later, ten complete enclosure sets we cast, panted and graphics applied to allow initial deployment and testing. The result is a steamlined looking product that reflects the tremendous efficiency increases brought to the forensic lab environment.
