Precision NanoSystems Spark and Blaze Nano-Medicine


Precision NanoSystems, Inc. is revolutionizing nano medicine by producing proprietary equipment to quickly and cost-effectively enable nano-medicine to be cell-specifically delivered to targeted parts of the body for research, diagnostic imaging, diagnosis, and disease treatment. Precision NanoSystems partnered with Anvil Studios to create Industrial Design solutions for two new machines; the small single-shot Spark, and the larger bench-top Blaze.

Precision NanoSystems wanted both designs to be distinctive and stand out amongst other Life Science equipment. Both products are produced in relatively low quantities, so sheetmetal enclosures were the optimal method of fabrication. The larger Blaze system has a large, clear polycarbonate front cover to allow users to easily see the mixing process. The smaller Spark unit’s main usage is in a biosafety cabinet, requiring its design to be as minimal as possible, yet still relate to the larger Blaze housing design.

Anvil Studios created a design language with dynamic, and faceted forms. The asymmetric application of the faceted geometries are intentionally designed to highlight the main user interaction zone on the larger Blaze system. A single asymmetric chop to the front corner face of the smaller Spark unit provides a strong visual tie to the larger system, while remaining as minimal as possible. The faceted forms provide clean, planar bends that are easily achievable via both sheetmetal and polycarbonate bending methods.

With diverse experience in industries ranging from consumer electronics, high-end audio, medical and life sciences, housewares and cycling, Anvil Studios is a product design company committed to bringing a broad range of solutions to the table.
