Super-edge technology with simple design

A simple, intuitive and user-friendly interface for the imaging analysis software of Ovizio

"Human Interface Group delivers good work fast and efficiently. I was very happy with the results because they applied best practices from the industry and made very specific recommendations thanks to the user interviews they conducted."

  • The challenge

    Extend the optimal user experience of the microscopes to a simple, intuitive and user-friendly interface design for OsOne

  • The result

    A whole new dimension for the entire process of observing and analysing cells in OsOne

  • Ovizio develops powerful super-edge microscopes for observing and analyzing living cells. Thanks to their highly advanced technology Ovizio already gave cell analysis a whole new dimension. The powerful and functional interface of the related imaging analysis software, OsOne, on the other hand, did not correspond well with the logic and workflow of the user:

    • The application missed a clear flow.
    • Each research team works in its own way, but the application did not always allow this.
    • The software needed to give optimal support for two distinct user groups.

  • But now, users are guided step-by-step through configuring and starting up a new experiment. With the new clear folder structure users organize themselves exactly the way that suits them. The automated data collection of cells has been completely revised. Users receive clear feedback on the progress of the experiment and they can intervene immediately if something threatens to go wrong.

    Redesign interface OsOne

    We started with user observations in the users’ own working environment. This gave us insight into the way users interact with the software and how they want to organize their experiments. During the user observations the bottlenecks were quickly revealed. Based on this, we selected the usability principles on which we based the new design:

    • People need a clear path to completion: It’s important to guide users from beginning to end when they use OsOne.
    • People are motivated by mastery and control: Users like to have software that allows them to work the way they want to work.
    • People are wired to see structure: People are visual and search for visual connections. A good layout helps users to understand and use the software.

  • Through contact with the end users the software now connects much more with the logic and workflow of the user. Furthermore, thanks to the application of these usability principles, the new user experience will delight users!
