Reference project

Development and commissioning of test stations for the production of blood glucose meters

A client contracts EXCO with the development and commissioning of test stations: Significant collaboration for the creation of a testing concept for a semi-automatic production line with six-figure volume per year. Further development of the test stations parallel to the development of the equipment, starting with the testing of the functional models through to series production.

The synergies were put to optimum use, as we completed both the development and the validation.

Tobias Matheis, Unit Leader, Test Station Development, EXCO GmbH


A test station framework developed in-house by EXCO is used. This contains a wide range of standard tasks such as the recording of the measuring signal, the activation of the periphery, linking with the database and the simulation of the hardware; only the project-specific testing steps require implementation.

Technologies used

Programming language C++ and C#

Client benefits
  • Cost reduction and shorter development times due to the use of a framework developed by EXCO in-house which already fulfils a wide range of standard tasks.
  • Development and validation services from one single source lead to a reduced coordination workload for the client.
