Project: Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) Gateway system
The undiagnosed diseases network (UDN) provided a national network of clinical and research sites that are capable of providing a high-quality set of diagnostic protocols that enabled the diagnosis of previously undiagnosed patients.
Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) Gateway system is the technical architecture Xyntek built for this clinical and research network:
• Enabled a scalable, low maintenance HIPAA/GCP-compliant layered technology environment designed for consistent high availability within a roles-based software architecture and minimized risk strategy
• Provided a unique web application for all potential patients to have the ability to submit their application to the UDN
• Enabled secure processing of UDN resources across layers of differing compliance by implementing an roles-based access model approach
• Allowed undiagnosed referred patients to register and submit an application
• Acted as a referral engine for UDN clinical sites for review and action or each application
Client: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY - Center for Advanced Food Technology
Project: Machine Vision, PLC, and Motion Control Engineering Design & Development, Implementation, and Support Services
Rutgers University – Center for Advanced Food Technology asked Xyntek to modify an existing machine vision inspection station for use in a new application to inspect a different tray format. Xyntek made use of the existing Rutgers’ machine vision unit to the extent practical to meet the defined inspection requirement. Xyntek implemented the necessary lighting and optics design together with the machine vision application programming.
The inspection requirement called for the inspection of the seal area on black plastic trays per the samples that have been provided to Xyntek:
• 12.75” x 10.5” size tray
• The trays moved continuously on a white belt conveyor. There are conveyor guides.
The following is a summary of our technical assessment and the design strategy for the project.
Primary Project Tasks:
1. Engineering project prep and site visit
2. Scope-of-Work review and technical recommendation
3. Hardware setup per application development
4. Final Lighting and Optics design
5. Vision application development
6. Vision system testing at Xyntek
7. I/O configuration and line integration design
8. Machine Vision control systems programming
9. Prepare and arrange system for shipping
10. On-site installation and testing
11. Client review meetings
Client: NAVAL SURFACE WARFARE CENTER (NSWC)Project: Image Processing
Designed an image processing evaluation system for the purposes of acquiring, processing, and evaluating images. Images could be averaged, subtracted, filtered, and convoluted. A flexible zoom routine allowed regions of interest (ROI) to be viewed at various magnifications.
The system could read and write full frame images to a SCSI optical drive. A deployed version of the system was being used as part of an X-ray imaging system to view encased metal objects with internal mechanical parts. The X-ray system used an intensified CCD camera, viewing a scintillating screen impinged upon by the X-rays. An integrated PLC and motion control system was used to rotate and translate the metal parts and control the safety interlocking of the X-ray system.
