Based in the US and Switzerland, Volpi, a world leader in optoelectronics, has partnered with Netherlands-based TOPIC Embedded Systems, a leader in embedded intelligence. The collaboration aims to expand Volpi’s portfolio of optoelectronic measurement solutions and further advance its digital initiatives.

The partnership has made Volpi boost the development of optical modules with embedded artificial intelligence (AI). Further, this will improve patients’ lives, optimize instrument performance, and drive innovative new revenue-generating business models for customers.

Volpi is the first-of-its-kind and only optical module design, development, and manufacturing organization providing optical modules with embedded intelligence, connectivity, and cloud computing.

Volpi optical measurement modules will use TOPIC’s software embedded intelligence to help increase the productivity of instruments using predictive maintenance and remote monitoring capabilities. The module can also track and deliver insights faster, reduce hardware costs, and generate new revenue and business model opportunities for instrument manufacturers.

“We are very excited about this new partnership with TOPIC. Not only will TOPIC help us accelerate our digital strategy, we share the same core entrepreneurial values, which is key to both firms’ growth,” said Max Kunz, CEO of Sales and Strategy, Volpi. “This partnership will advance both companies to the next level and will bring great value to our clients in the life sciences and diagnostics market space.”

“TOPIC is proud to partner with Volpi and support the advancement of Volpi’s digital initiatives,” said Rieny Rijnen, CEO and Founder, TOPIC. “By combining our hardware and software development expertise with Volpi’s optoelectronic measurement solutions, we can help generate added value for their customers.”

While the product development is already underway, Volpi and TOPIC are actively collaborating on client engagements. In September 2021, Volpi will debut its intelligence-embedded optical measurement modules at the AACC (American Association for Clinical Chemistry) Annual Scientific Meeting and Clinical Lab Expo in Atlanta.
