Smart System Builder Framework
Available from apartis Information Management
The Smart System Builder Framework is a software framework validated and developed in accordance with ISO 13485 medical device regulatory guidelines. It's a flexible and extensible framework that allows for the rapid development of instrument and/or system control software. Hardware and instrument components can be easily added or swapped out and branded UI elements are readily integrated. Developers can program process control scripts using C#.
Smart System Builder scripts are complied at execution time on the fly before a run. Apartis provides proxy classes that make the execution of commands on system instruments and components as simple as possible, including error handling and parallel processing. Framework classes such as Event Handling, File Handling and Thread Handling are provided to facilitate simpler programming of Smart System Builder Scripts.
SiLA I standard drivers are plug and play with the Smart System Builder Framework. An extremely powerful Hamilton STAR/STARlet device driver (that suppresses all unwanted Hamilton dialogs and extracts all step responses) is fully implemented and Tecan EVO and Biorad CFX Connect drivers are currently in development (targeted for November 2019 availability). Several component level drivers are available.
The developers' suite includes all tools needed to develop, distribute and execute scripts. The execution engine (import/export and run scripts only) is a separate module for commercial software distribution.
