We design and develop dispense technologies for a huge variety of applications, from medical and cosmetic devices to oil and gas, agriculture and beverage systems.
Our scientists and engineers exploit the potential of physics and chemistry to deliver the desired fluid characteristics, no matter how challenging the specification.
Decades of excellence
We have managed challenging dispense projects for a diverse range of clients over many decades, developing a series of breakthrough products along the way.
Our multidisciplinary approach draws in our fluidics and microfluidics engineers, physicists, chemists, systems engineers and innovation facilitators.
We excel at challenging convention, using a combination of analysis, modelling and practical testing to understand and optimise complex systems, leading to rapid development of novel technologies.

Tech, tools & facilities
Food & beverage lab
Specifically set up to meet the unique requirements of developing food- and beverage-safe systems, our dedicated lab means we have the necessary procedures and equipment in place to design and test new products in-house. Quantitative and scientific testing is fundamental to our science-led innovation approach, but ultimately taste tests are always needed. This is our only lab where the consumption of food and drink is not just allowed but essential!
Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyser, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyser, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.
Vinfusion wine blending system
Vinfusion is a personalised wine blending system that allows the user to design their perfect wine. Vinfusion also makes wine recommendations based on the user’s tastes while collecting valuable market intelligence for the vendor.

Helping women to take control of menopausal hot flushes
The menopause is seen by many to be merely a “women’s issue”. We have partnered with the National Innovation Centre for Ageing, to explore women’s experience of the menopause and to propose technology-based interventions.
Could a radical approach to mass screening conquer COVID this winter?
The next step in the fight against coronavirus looks set to be mass screening of whole cities and towns. Symon Cotton, Head of Life Sciences at Cambridge Consultants, believes that so-called multipool screening could make all the difference to the success of this approach during the current second wave of the virus.
Shooting for the moon: how to test 10 million samples for COVID-19
In September the UK government announced Operation Moonshot – to deliver the mass screening of 10 million samples for COVID-19 every day. Andrew Goulter takes a pragmatic look at five key areas of focus if we are to increase screening efficiency and capacity.
Engineering the future of innovations in oncology
This paper highlights macro and micro factors affecting oncology and proposes a partnership-driven framework to catalyze innovation for oncology-focused biopharma – as well as the role that select high-impact technologies will have on the on the entire value-chain of cancer research and care delivery.
