ZP Lab - Sensor, Biosensor and IVD Incubator

ZP AS launches an onsite and online  biosensor incubator.


ZP AS has launched the world’s first biosensor and IVD incubator both onsite and online. We are living in a IoT revolution where everything will be connected to the Cloud/internet and where data will be continuously streamed and translated into actionable information in real time by AI.

The issue is that when you survey the world’s sensor landscape you find that whilst there are thousands of condition sensors such as temperature, pressure, locations, movement sensors etc there is a distinct lack of chemical and biochemical sensors. The irony is that most of the data streams that are commercially interesting are the biological, biochemical and chemical data, but the necessary sensors such as: glucose, lactate, oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, pH, nitrate, phosphate, potassium, sodium calcium, alcohol, redox, etc were not commercially available.  At ZP we have many of the biological, biochemical and chemical sensors that would otherwise be missing from the commercial landscape.  Our business model has always been to accelerate our customers and clients to market and so we have these sensors on the shelf so that companies and entrepreneurs can quickly test an idea or a concept and not be inhibited by the lack of a sensor.

Our experience at ZP is that companies, academics and entrepreneurs will buy and try one of our off the shelf sensors, gather some proof-of-principle data and then move forward with us to develop a sensor that are more tailored towards their idea, market and application.


At ZP we are by default a collaborative business and we know that we will move faster and more efficiently with partnerships and so we are delighted to announce our efforts to start rolling out the ZP Incubator. Our incubator is intended to help entrepreneurs, companies and start-ups to get going faster and more efficiently on their sensor ideas.


To apply to join the ZP Incubator you do need to meet a minimum of three criteria:


• CRITERIA ONE – You must an idea or a technology that involves an electrochemical sensor.

• CRITERIA TWO – You must have an idea that has commercial merit with a path to market.

• CRITERIA THREE – You must have a source of funding to get you some way to the market.

Please do note that meeting these three criteria does not guarantee an acceptance to join the incubator, but please do try.

Our first onsite incubator is located next to our ZP AS HQ in Norway. If you join our hub you will have access to a team, equipment, technology and manufacturing capability able to take you to market
