Collaborative development

Blood cell counts are typically among the first diagnostic tests for general health assessment, ruling out infections or anemia and monitoring cancer patients during the course of chemotherapy. Diatron Zrt, based in Budapest, Hungary, develops diagnostic equipment such as clinical chemical and hematology analyzers used in medical clinics, hospitals and veterinary facilities in more than 110 countries.

In the highly competitive global medical device market, successful companies are constantly improving their products by increasing precision, lowering costs, adding features and decreasing their footprints in laboratories where space is at a premium. Diatron’s products must not only provide top performance, but must also have visual appeal and remain affordable.

As a matter of continuous improvement, in 2012, the company decided to reaffirm its choice of computer-aided design (CAD) solution, reassessing the market’s leading CAD systems. After a thorough review, Diatron engineers found Siemens Digital Industries Software’s Solid Edge® software still to be the best for its needs, this time learning that Solid Edge is the most complete hybrid 2D/3D CAD system that uses synchronous technology for accelerated design, faster change and improved imported re-use. Diatron engineers remain pleased with the functionality of Solid Edge, as well as working with graphIT Ltd., a Siemens Digital Industries Software partner that provides training, implementation and consulting services.
