About FluidicsLab


The energy transition is causing disruptive changes in revenue streams and business models.  Conventional fluid testing technologies, initially developed for the oil & gas industry, often fail to meet the rigorous requirements for Cleantech applications such as carbon capture & storage, hydrogen, energy storage, and deep geothermal.  As the Cleantech market for net zero continues its rapid expansion, operators are increasingly seeking high-quality data to mitigate project risks and make well-informed investment decisions.

At FluidicsLab, we develop new lab workflows and enhanced technologies that provide data for complex fluid systems crucial to the successful implementation of Net Zero projects.

In the past decade, we have innovated and commercialised InspIOR®, an all-in-one microfluidic fluid testing technology platform that brings the fluidics laboratory right to your fingertips.  It operates at extreme conditions p, T (sub-ambient to 200 °C and up to 20.000 psi) and is fully automated, enabling safe and efficient use with minimal human interaction.



As a leading High-Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) technology provider for PVT, IOR/EOR, and New Energy (CCS/CCU, Hydrogen) applications, we extend our expertise to energy companies and research organisations, streamlining lab routines while significantly reducing costs.

Our mission is to accelerate the implementation of net-zero projects, empowering our customers to achieve breakthroughs with unmatched efficiency.

We integrate Microfluidics Technology into our Lab Services and Systems, unleashing the true potential of innovation.


We have invested in a fully equipped laboratory that puts us in a position to perform laboratory experiments using gases such as hydrogen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen mixtures at reservoir conditions.

Our laboratory equipment ranges from autoclaves to core-flooding rigs to microfluidics solutions




We never compromise on quality and deliver services and products comprising unique combinations of state-of-the-art technologies, expertise, and experience - on time and on budget.
