The firm has developed what it calls a  “laboratory on a chip” technology so that oil samples from heavy machinery like pumps and generators can be analysed on site instead of being shipped to onshore laboratories. 

Through analysing samples on site, operators are able to assess how machinery is performing and when maintenance is required.  

Founder and CEO Rotimi Alabi said: “RAB Microfluidics has identified that businesses who own and operate lubricated heavy machinery have a significant challenge around how the conditions which ensure the reliability of such machines are monitored.

“We are revolutionising oil testing and analysis services by making conventional laboratory procedures mobile, rapid and routine.

“We do this by delivering oil analysis more than one thousand times faster and around ten times cheaper than the current approach that is based on sending oil samples to laboratories.” 

The latest  investment round,  also included London-based Newable VenturesScottish Enterprise and existing investors.

Eos Advisory’s Managing Partner, Andrew McNeill spoke highly of the research company.

Mr McNeill said: “RAB-Microfluidics is one of the most exciting early stage Scottish technology companies in the energy sector and we’re pleased to have brought together such a strong set of investors to support Rotimi and his team through their next phase of growth.”
