Bringing Biotech to Mobile Devices
A Thermo Fisher Scientific brand, Life Technologies, commissioned a mobile app to push the boundaries of the Internet of Things (IoT) by bringing real-time data directly from DNA-processing laboratory equipment into the hands of scientists on their mobile devices. This app, developed using Xamarin, provides a suite of functionality ranging from training videos, a full e-commerce experience with lab product details, specs, images, and downloadable PDFs, and a specialized calculator for creating properly balanced solutions for use in the featured lab equipment. The piece de resistance is the live lab interface empowering the user to log directly into thermal cycling devices, ProFlex™ and SimpliAmp™, to check on their status and temperature. These devices, solutions, and mobile interface are used to conduct lab experiments, replicating a single piece of DNA into thousands to millions of copies of that DNA sequence. The app is used in cancer diagnosis and research as well as studies in genetics.
This app was awarded a Davey Gold Award and a W3 Award by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), and was a finalist for a Xammy award.
