About FluidX®

Our customers store chemical compounds and biological samples for long periods of time to enable them to develop a better understanding of disease processes and help develop new treatments for the future.


We love the fact that we help this research by providing the storage and tracking products that enable scientists to carry out their research safe in the knowledge that their samples are preserved and identified for decades into the future. Who knows, maybe one day we'll find that a key treatment is developed with the help of material stored in FluidX 2D-Coded Tubes!

FluidX Admin Building UK

The team at FluidX probably know more about 2D Storage Tubes and Readers than any other group in the world. We should! After all we were part of the team that developed the very first 2D-Coded Tubes back in 1999.


Soon after we also introduced the world's very first reader capable of reading a whole rack of 96 tubes. Seems common-place now but then it was revolutionary. The core of the decoding engine developed for that very first reader is still being used in our readers today and, with over fifteen years of continuous development, it's no wonder FluidX readers perform so well and provide the most robust and reliable de-coding available.


Since that time we've been at the forefront of developing consumables and readers, and many of our products featured on this web site are "firsts". Today we continue to innovate and we are delighted to introduce new products and updates to provide improved tools for our customers - almost on a weekly basis.


As one of our customers commented; "FluidX are great, they have really useful products". How do we do this? Easy, we talk, we ask questions, we listen and then we develop great products! Our greatest pleasure is seeing that a new product really does make our customers' lives easier and helps their research; our biggest compliment is to get the comment, "wow what an amazing product".
