Rethinking Laboratory Equipment: Redesigning a Rotary Evaporator

In collaboration with Adithya Scientific, a pioneering lab equipment manufacturer in India, we embarked on a transformative journey to enhance the design of their rotary evaporator, specifically focusing on the 5 litre version. Recognising the need for a design overhaul, our goal was to address existing challenges, improve functionality, and elevate user experience in the laboratory setting.

Ideation for Innovation

Our journey began with a meticulous examination of the current rotary evaporator by Adithya Scientific, along with an in-depth analysis of competitors' offerings.
Through extensive dialogue with clients and end-users, we identified key pain points, including disparate parts, inefficient space utilisation, and outdated controls. Armed with insights, we delved into ideation, exploring diverse architectures and forms to craft a solution that not only mitigated existing issues but also introduced novel features and enhancements.

Throughout this process, we leveraged design thinking methodologies to foster creativity and innovation, brainstorming multiple concepts and evaluating their feasibility against user needs and market trends. Collaborative workshops with Adithya Scientific's team enabled us to refine our ideas further, ensuring alignment with the company's vision and objectives.

Crafting for Perfection

From refining the movement mechanism of the chemical bath tub to centralising cable management, each element was meticulously crafted to deliver a cohesive and intuitive user experience.
With our design concepts in hand, we set the prototyping phase in motion to bring our vision to life. Through rigorous testing and iteration, we fine-tuned every aspect of the rotary evaporator design, ensuring smooth functionality and optimal user interaction.

Prototyping allowed us to validate our design assumptions and identify areas for improvement iteratively. By incorporating user feedback and conducting real-world simulations, we iteratively refined the design to address any remaining issues and optimize performance. This iterative approach ensured that the final product met the highest standards of quality and usability, setting the stage for its successful implementation in laboratory environments.

Uniqueness in Measuring and Parameters

Our innovative approach integrates cutting-edge technology with ergonomic design, offering users a seamless and intuitive interface for precise control and monitoring of essential parameters..
With a sleek, modern aesthetic and compact footprint, this lab equipment sets a new standard for efficiency and sophistication in laboratory settings. The result is a rotary evaporator that stands out in both form and function. The redesigned rotary evaporator not only addresses the shortcomings of previous models but also introduces groundbreaking features that enhance usability and performance. By incorporating user-centric design principles and leveraging the latest advancements in materials and manufacturing techniques, we've created a product that redefines the user experience and sets new benchmarks for innovation in the industry. By addressing key pain points and introducing groundbreaking features, our design has transformed the user experience and set new benchmarks for performance and reliability. With its sleek, modern aesthetic and intuitive interface, the rotary evaporator has become a symbol of excellence in laboratory equipment, earning accolades from users and industry experts alike.

Where Ease Meets Innovation

Ergonomically positioned controls and a simplified digital display streamline operation, while corrosion-resistant materials withstand the rigors of chemical exposure.
Engineered with user comfort and convenience in mind, the redesigned rotary evaporator ensures a stellar user experience from start to finish. Intuitive touch interfaces empower users to navigate effortlessly, making routine tasks a breeze and enhancing productivity in the lab. The thoughtful design extends beyond aesthetics to prioritise user safety and efficiency. With features such as automatic shut-off mechanisms and intuitive error prompts, the rotary evaporator minimises the risk of accidents and ensures smooth operation even for novice users. By putting user needs at the forefront of our design process, we've created a product that not only meets expectations but exceeds them, delivering unparalleled performance and reliability in laboratory environments.

User Interface for the Modern Lab

Taking a departure from the numerous buttons, knobs and toggles in the existing rotary evaporators, we created a completely new user interface for today’s user working in a modern lab. This interface design elevated Aditya Scientific’s standing and reputation among its users.
Instead of creating several tens of buttons, toggles, switches and knobs for each individual function, we created a sleek new interface that was completely digital and touch enabled. All the controls were done through a modern tablet with LED display, integrated to the rest of the rotary evaporator through a data transfer cable neatly tucked away. We kept in mind existing user behavior around controls - twisting knobs, flicking switches, etc. and mimicked those same actions on our User Interface for maximum usability. This ensured users needn’t go through a long steep learning curve to use the newly designed rotary evaporator, instead they intuitively knew what to do and how it works right from the first glance.

Engineered for details

From the coherent movement of components to the vibrant color palette that embodies Adithya Scientific's brand identity, every detail is crafted with precision and purpose.
Behind the scenes, meticulous engineering and material selection ensure unmatched performance and durability. The rotary evaporator embodies excellence in both form and function, setting a new benchmark for laboratory equipment worldwide. The design process was driven by a commitment to quality and innovation, with every decision guided by a relentless pursuit of perfection. By collaborating closely with Adithya Scientific and leveraging our expertise in design and engineering, we've created a product that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of laboratory professionals. With its superior performance, durability, and aesthetics, the rotary evaporator is poised to revolutionize laboratory workflows and drive productivity to new heights.

Redesign boosts sales, cementing Adithya Scientific's Market Presence

The impact of our design overhaul extends far beyond the laboratory walls. With increased sales, heightened brand recognition, and newfound export opportunities, Adithya Scientific has solidified its position as a leader in the industry. The redesigned rotary evaporator not only enhances efficiency and productivity but also paves the way for future innovations in laboratory technology.
