Field of activity: Service company , Manufacturer - Maker

Activities

Energy and environment are major challenges for the next 30 years. The quality control of new energy sources (biomass, hydrogen), the emission control of gases and pollutants and their impact on the environment and health are at the heart of APIX ANALYTICS developments. 

APIX ANALYTICS has designed and engineered a range of miniaturized instruments, able to analyze the composition of complex mixtures of gas and liquids, from the lighter gas hydrogen, to heavy crude oils, including volatile organic compounds (BTEX)at level from % to ppb. The analysis is carried out onsite, on real-time, even in dangerous areas (explosive atmosphere), where we used to take samples and send them to the analytical labincreasing the response time. Using APIX ANALYTICS solutions, our clients can on-time, reduce and control their emissions, optimize their manufacturing process, be alerted in case of malfunctions or when exceeding critical threshold, while making substantial savings (CAPEX and OPEX)

Since 2019, APIX ANALYTICS significantly exports its analyzers. Its major customers are located outside France, in Europe for 60% of its turnover, in Asia (mainly in China) for another 20%. APIX ANALYTICS is currently opening a sister company in China, and relies on a distributor network for its EMEA, Asian and Canadian business. APIX is actively engaged in the recruitment of a US distributor.

APIX ANALYTICS has developed an innovative, patented, universal detector based on a “Nano Electro Mechanical System (NEMS) called NGD “Nano Gravimetric Detector”. It is a multipurpose silicon component bearing all the advantages for detection: small, low-powered, ultra-sensitive, reliable, economical, with a long-life span, using no consumable (aka hydrogen for FID detector) and having a low impact on environment. 

Benchmarked with existing solutions (i.e., FID detector), the NGD detector does not need a Hydrogen Ionization Flame eliminating all its related inconveniences to analyze the sample. This task becomes safer with lower logistic costs.  

The manufacturing of a laboratory chromatograph requires 80 to 100 kg of base materials where our solution requires only 20 to 10 kg and is therefore compact, easily transported and implanted in an industrial environment. 

This is the only apparatus, able to analyze gases and liquids, from hydrogen, to heavy oils (C40) using the same equipment. 

Innovation is the corner stone of APIX ANALYTICS start-up. APIX ANALYTICS is ranked 70th most innovative French Company. APIX ANALYTICS owns more than 25 patents and spend for its R&D close to 50% of its operating cost outside goods purchase, which also accounts for 50% of its 2020 turnover.
