Partnership forms to develop new technology for designing flow cytometers, other biophotonic systems

Design Parametrics, Kinetic River, and Plan Energy Ltd. are partnering to develop and market a set of software tools and related services for the design of flow cytometers and other complex optical biomedical systems.

Design Parametrics, Kinetic River (both of San Jose, CA), and Plan Energy Ltd. (Finland) are partnering to develop and market a set of software tools and related services for the design of flow cytometers and other complex optical biomedical systems.

The software and service offering, called BeamWise, is available from Design Parametrics and Kinetic River for evaluation. With BeamWise, a researcher or instrument developer can define an optical system within a few minutes; the software automatically generates 2D functional drawings, full 3D CAD models, and a parts list for implementation using real optomechanical components.

BeamWise builds on Design Parametrics' experience in developing model-based design automation and configuration solutions for electrical systems, capital equipment, building structures, and process plants. Kinetic River, with optical system design experience, offers design services enhanced by the BeamWise technology. Plan Energy, with Design++ model development experience, offers customization and enhancement services for BeamWise-based system models.
