EVOQ Triple Quad Mass Spec Mass Spectrometer by Daniel Dion, Benchmark for Bruker

Home > Winners > #31804


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
EVOQ Triple Quad Mass Spec

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Mass Spectrometer

INSPIRATION:
Benchmark ID helped Bruker to identify and develop the design syntax for the EVOQ as well as to establish a new family look for their future product offerings. Through user interviews and task analysis it was determined that qualities of speed, seamless work flow and robustness were of tantamount importance to end users. As a response, the formal design language borrows imagery from both jet engines and surfing as metaphors for speed, power and robustness as well as smoothness and fluidity.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Industrial Design of the EVOQ MS allows the user to focus on solving analytical problems and not be distracted by the instruments parameter operation. The products design intent, compact size and usability is reinforced through the use of subtle curves in contrast with crisp edge details and contrasting colors that draw the users attention to Bruker's signature iconic round inlet cover, which is the system functional interface that bares the Bruker brand.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The EVOQ triple quadrupole for liquid chromatography was designed for a singular purpose - to reliably quantify thousands of real samples in the fastest sample-to-report time possible. It delivers exceptional sensitivity, precision, accuracy, linearity, and a wide dynamic range for your multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) assays. Innovations in software and atmospheric pressure ionization (API) technology make it a game changer for routine high-sensitivity, quantitative analysis.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started at Bruker in Fremont California as an initiative to develop a more compact high sensitivity Mass Spectrometer. The core functioning of the design is the intellectual property on Bruker. Benchmark Electronics was contracted in April 2011 to provide the Industrial Design as well as Mechanical Design support for the creation of the external housing. The Overall project length was 18 months.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Scientific Instruments, Medical Devices and Research Equipment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
All the the internal system components are comprised of high tolerance precision machined parts and high performance electronics sub assemblies, All exterior housing components consist of coated formed sheet metal and sheet aluminium and RIM molded urethane parts.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The EVOQ measures 53 x 45 x 70 cm (21 x 18 x 28 in) and weighs 68 kg (193 lb).

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Industrial Design and Usability research was conducted by Benchmark Electronics at the Bruker site in Fremont California as well as formal user interview at the Stanford University Mass Spectometry Lab. The user interviews consisted of user data gathering with respect to predicate system usage, like and dislikes. Subsequent Task analysis were also conducted to understand existing work flows and to find opportunities for optimization through design.

CHALLENGE:
The Industrial Design challenge had to do with providing an intuitive physical interface that would be visually appealing and in keeping with key aspects of the Bruker design language, i.e.; their iconic ball feature at the ion source. Other major challenges had to do with compacting the design to bench top unit size and not impede the target system performance characteristics. Considerable attention was also given to thermal needs and housing design for maximum and controlled air flow.
