Abstract

AbbVie Biopharmaceutical Company manufactures and supplies drugs that are delivered by the CADD-Legacy 1400 infusion pump. To ensure the pump is functioning properly, in-house performance testing checks that infusion pump engineering standards are being met. These tests can be tedious when done manually. To simplify and speed up this testing process, the Pump Automator was built. Using actuators to press buttons and a camera to read the screen, the Pump Automator removes the need for a lab technician to manually perform tests, ultimately saving time and providing a more robust testing process.
