Basler medical life science solutions - realise your vision

Basler computer vision solutions for medical and life sciences

Most of what is required in the medical industry cannot always be seen by the naked eye. In the vision world, those in medical and life science hugely require accurate vision systems to detect, analyse and trace. 

With the help of machine vision systems, we can help to deliver medicines and devices faster, and Basler computer vision systems can be used and incorporated into an automation system.

About medical and life science

A lot is happening in vision technology, and it is indeed a growing sector, especially for medical and life sciences. 

Our involvement in the sector ranges from research and development and lab automation, all the way to the end process of inspection of packaging and product quality.

Find Basler vision systems in medical applications like:

  • Endoscopy and microscopy
  • Ophthalmology
  • Dermatology
  • IC Unit monitoring
  • Analytical chemistry
  • Medical imaging

What is needed for the medical and life science field?

For medics, processes must be extremely accurate to avoid any mistakes.

Components used should be simple to configure and remain easy to use, as medical professionals would be using them frequently.

Flexibility is also a major trend in machine vision as there is a greater need for different outputs like shape, size and consistency.
