Confocal Research Microscope
For the RS-G4 project, Caliber I.D., a company specializing in tissue imaging at the cellular level, worked closely with KEK to bring an innovative research microscope to the market. KEK provided design brainstorming through plastics engineering and manufacturing for Caliber I.D.. The result is a cohesive product that provides unprecedented ease-of-use and accuracy encased in a clean, modern housing.
The close collaboration of the teams at KEK and Caliber I.D. resulted in the success of the design.
Diving straight into three dimensions, our Design Team explored multiple forms and handle configurations to provide an array of options to Caliber I.D.. The design to the right was chosen for refinement and to move forward into mechanical engineering.
Following form exploration, we turned our attention to manufacturability and engineering. Close examinations into component configurations and mounting for the RS-G4 were the center of attention.
