Bruker Announces Acquisition of Magnettech's EPR Business
Bruker and Freiberg Instruments Establish Related EPR Supply Partnership
Bruker announced the acquisition of the Magnettech EPR business from Freiberg Instruments GmbH, and the establishment of a related, long-term EPR supply partnership with Freiberg Instruments. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
Magnettech's benchtop electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) system, the MiniScope MS 5000, and a broad range of Magnettech EPR accessories, expand Bruker's existing EPR portfolio. With this addition, Bruker's EPR product line now includes compact micro-EPR systems, dedicated or research-grade benchtop EPR systems, as well as a range of floor-standing research EPR systems for many different EPR molecular and materials research applications, and dedicated polymer and beverage analysis solutions.
Freiberg Instruments, which has developed and is manufacturing the MiniScope MS 5000 EPR products, and Bruker have also agreed to a long-term EPR supply partnership, and Bruker intends to continue to work with some of Magnettech's key channel partners, in particular Aerial for the important market of radiation processing and dosimetry.
Dr. Falko Busse, Group President of Bruker BioSpin, stated: "We are excited by the opportunities of the Magnettech EPR business in new market segments. This acquisition complements our EPR offerings, so that we can now address most EPR customers' requirements in molecular research and in chemical and applied markets quality control and process analysis. The long-term supply and innovation partnership with Freiberg Instruments establishes an agile EPR ecosystem that combines the strengths of both companies."
EPR spectroscopy, also known as Electron Spin Resonance (ESR), is the molecular method of choice to detect, quantify and characterize paramagnetic species, unpaired electrons, free radicals, reactive oxygen species and transition metal complexes. This makes EPR uniquely suitable for selected scientific research applications and certain chemistry QC and food analysis solutions.
