Roche Diagnostics International Ltd is using GNU/Linux in medical instrument products and has developed “Roche Linux”, a Debian-based distribution. This talk aims to show why Debian is well suited for our purpose, how we are using it and what we’ve built on top. We would like to share our experience with the Universal OS and how we address the challenges of developing Medical Software. The deployment and upgradability of each software layer is more and more important not only for meeting security requirements but as well for speeding up the development and software validation. To respond to these demands we developed a build pipeline tool based on Debian repositories and the Debian Build toolchain.
