Development and manufacturing of modern analysis equipment for research and industry

Sioux designs, develops and produces high-quality, competitive modules, systems and machines for the analytical market. This will strengthen the competitiveness of OEMs in laboratory technology, chemistry, biotechnology and pharma sectors.

Our competencies cover the entire development and acquisition process of high-tech equipment, from software, electronics, mechatronics and mathware to production. In doing so, we strengthen the OEM's business cases by focusing on innovation, acceleration and cost-effectiveness.

Analytical systems possess a wide variety of functionalities such as accurate sampling and preparation, conditioning, detection, monitoring, visualisation and data processing. Consequently, the realisation of high-quality equipment requires a multidisciplinary approach and high-quality technological skills. Sioux combines these qualities within various market-specific knowledge domains.

Domains 

  • Electron microscopy imaging (TEM, SEM, FIB, SDB)
  • Table Top electron microscopy imaging (SEM)
  • Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX)
  • Atomic Force Microscopy Imaging (AFM)
  • Analysis
  • Quality control
  • Diagnostics
  • Measuring and testing technology
  • Biology and the life sciences

Sioux has extensive experience in developing hardware and software systems that determine the performance of high-end analysis equipment, such as embedded software, data processing, optics, vacuum and cryo-technology. As an R&D and assembly company, we can easily bridge the gap between development, prototype building, testing, validation, serial production and maintenance. In this way, we help our customers perform better, faster and cheaper in their global market.

Cases

In-house development of table TOP laboratory equipment

Sioux was the main contractor in the development of table top laboratory equipment for Pamgene's personalized medicine. We were responsible for the mechanical, optical, software and electronic in-house development of the system and the transformation of (outsourced) industrial design into a series of products.

Research equipment for aerospace

The Swiss SpacePharma allows customers to do research under unique micro gravity conditions. The company asked Sioux for the concept development of the CubeSats for studying the behavior of liquids in space.

Control platform for liquid process analysers

Metrohm Applikon makes liquid process analyzers. Due to end-of-life hardware component issues, it was necessary to develop a new controller platform for its product ranges. In a very short and efficient lead time, Sioux contributed to the definition and creation of this new platform.

Software development for research products

Technobis Crystallization Systems is the world leader in technology for solid state research, process development and formulation. Sioux took responsibility for the full software development for the company's product lines.

Avantium 

Avantium develops gas and liquid analysis equipment. For one of its newest products - the Flowrence - Avantium outsourced the entire software development and maintenance to Sioux.
