The Hardware Department

CellaVision develops advanced medical equipment with high requirements on reliability, accuracy, image quality, and throughput. The analyzers are equipped with high-resolution optics, precision mechanics, and specialized image processing. The Hardware department consists of mechanical, software, and electronics engineers, each contributing with their specific knowledge and cooperating in solving interdisciplinary problems and turning ideas into products.

The Hardware department consists of two teams: Mechanics and Software. The Mechanics team is responsible for developing and maintaining the mechanical, optical, and esthetical parts of the analyzers and accessories. The Software team is responsible for developing and maintaining the embedded software, PC software, and electronics for the analyzers and accessories. Both teams have responsibilities in testing analyzers and software according to applicable international regulations and standards, and in transferring designs to production.

This is an excellent opportunity for you who want to participate in the whole development process of medical devices while working in an international environment where quality, development, and innovation are constantly in focus.
