i-LAB Colorimeter

Microptix had a microchip-sized sensor that could analyze the spectrum of light reflected off a sample. With the i-LAB, this transformative technology has placed lab bench technology in the hand of the user. The i-LAB analyzes fluids that are drawn in to the disposable chamber. It can even identify brands of beer.

Devlin was tapped from the very beginning, and convinced the client that vertical format and disposable bellow pump chamber would be a cleaner and more elegant solution than a pipette format. Devlin designed the optics in the top neck, the handheld body, and worked with a manufacturer to develop the disposable sampling chamber.
