Our expertise in physics, chemistry and materials science underpins everything we do.

Fundamental principles

Our knowledge of the structure and properties of different materials is used extensively in a variety of applications, from remotely monitoring tons of mining slurry to working with security inks on a molecular scale.

In particular, our fluidics and microfluidics expertise is crucial to many projects, from dispensing the perfect pint of beer to shaping the precise characteristics of sprays, foams and emulsions of all kinds. 

Key strengths

Micro-structural control in fluids
We understand the intricate behaviours of fluids and their interaction with physical surfaces, a vital factor in many of our beverage projects.
Structure-property relationships
Our knowledge of materials science ensures that all elements of a system’s design use the most appropriate materials.
Thermal properties
We’re particularly experienced in phase change materials and the handling of hot and cold fluids for beverage systems.

Tech, tools & facilities


Physical science labs

A range of wet and dry labs which allow us to perform a wide range of physical science research and development. Specific equipment includes wet and dry benches, fume hoods, malvern mastersizer particle analysis system and UV-VIS spectrometer.


Agilent GC-MS

Our Agilent Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometer enables detection and chemical analysis of a wide range of organic substances down to parts-per-million levels or below. This highly specialised piece of analytical equipment allows us to determine the make-up of a very wide range of organic materials in solid, liquid or vapour form and investigate flavour and aroma chemistry.

Optics labs

Optics labs

Our suite optics labs enable us to build complex and high-precision optical layouts, typically for testing prototype designs and novel techniques prior to deployment. Featuring six high-spec optical benches with configurable interlocked controlled areas for high-power (class 4) laser work and specialist facilities for interferometry, spectroscopy, low-noise fluorescence imaging and photon counting. This space can be split into separate laser-controlled areas, allowing multiple experiments to run simultaneously, giving our optical engineers the capability to develop creative solutions without instrumentation restrictions.

Food & beverage lab

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!
