ZiuZ Hyperspectral

June 24, 2024

New addition to ZiuZ's ApolloZ: the hyperspectral

Real-time chemical composition monitoring of medication was once a dream for ZiuZ, but it is now a reality. Thanks to hyperspectral imaging and smart software, ZiuZ can quickly distinguish between pills of the same shape and color but with different active ingredients. This is unique in the market. ZiuZ developed the technology in-house, and Spark handled the integration into the ApolloZ, a device for checking medication pouches.

During the development of the ApolloZ, we accounted for the possibility of implementing this future technology later on. When the technology became available, we seamlessly integrated it into the core of the existing system. Managing the temperature was a particular technical challenge. We designed a cooling system that allows the light source to emit sufficient light without causing heat issues for the sensitive components of the ApolloZ, the operator, or the medications being scanned. We developed an active shutter and a dual cooling channel for this purpose. An additional challenge was that these technical components had to be designed for low volumes. The result feels not like an add-on but as an intended design without compromises, maintaining the high-quality feel of this technically advanced product.
