Where Design Meets Precision in Silicon Valley’s Laboratories

In the cutting-edge labs of Silicon Valley, the chemists at SFBIO were in search of a solution that could elevate their research and experiments through technological innovation. They envisioned a software that not only streamlined the intricacies of chemical analysis but did so with an interface that was a joy to interact with. Xfiner was tasked with this ambitious project: to develop a UX/UI design for software that could communicate with complex laboratory hardware, all within the confines of a 24” touchscreen interface and embracing the neomorphic design style.

Challenge: Beyond the demand for aesthetic excellence, the software required a deep integration with the lab's hardware, necessitating a level of UX/UI sophistication and customizability that pushed the limits of standard design frameworks. Understanding the specific, often intricate, workflows of chemists and translating them into an intuitive digital experience presented a unique challenge—one that involved not just design skills but a significant learning curve regarding lab operations and chemical processes.

Xfiner's Solution:

  • Adaptive Interface for Diverse Experiments: Recognizing the varied nature of chemical research, Xfiner created a software interface that could adapt to different experimental setups and requirements. This adaptability ensured that chemists could configure their workflows according to the specific demands of each experiment, enhancing both efficiency and accuracy.
  • Seamless Hardware Integration: The design went beyond the visual, ensuring that every swipe, tap, and touch on the 24” screen translated into precise control over lab equipment. This seamless integration between software and hardware allowed chemists to conduct their research with an unprecedented level of digital interaction.
  • Engagement through Neomorphic Design: By adopting the neomorphic design style, Xfiner ensured that the software was not only functional but also visually stunning and engaging to use. The subtle effects, soft shadows, and semi-flat colors characteristic of neomorphism brought a modern, tactile feel to the digital interface, making complex laboratory tasks more accessible and reducing the learning curve for new users.


The deployment of the SFBIO’s Chemist Lab Software marked a transformative moment for the lab. The software has become an integral tool in the chemists' arsenal, enabling them to push the boundaries of what's possible in their research. Through this project, Xfiner has demonstrated that when design and functionality converge at the highest level, the potential for innovation is limitless.

A Testament to Collaborative Innovation: This project stands as a proud example of what can be achieved when designers and scientists come together. The positive feedback from the SFBIO team underscores the value of the software in their daily work, confirming the success of Xfiner's approach to solving complex challenges through design.
