Bruker Daltonics Receives Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award for Chemical and Biological Agent Detectors

21-Oct-2004

Bruker BioSciences Corporation announced that Frost & Sullivan has selected the Company's Bruker Daltonics subsidiary for their 2004 Product Innovation Award in the Chemical & Biological Agent Detector Markets.

Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Matthew Farr stated: "Bruker Daltonics has more than two decades of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) detection experience. This experience has led Bruker Daltonics to develop a broad range of NBC detection products based on several technology platforms."

Bruker Daltonics' NBC product line includes a nuclear radiation detector, the hand-held SVG-2, which can be vehicle mounted. The SVG-2 incorporates sensors for detecting gamma and neutron radiation. Bruker Daltonics also produces two complementary biological agent detectors: the Chemical Biological Mass Spectrometer (CBMS) can detect and classify biological agents in as little as three minutes without operator intervention. The CBMS is used in the US Army's Biological Integrated Detections System. The new APSIS(TM) is a fieldable DNA microarray system for the subsequent identification of harmful pathogens.

Frost & Sullivan President Krishna Srinivasan explained: "Bruker Daltonics has expanded the range of products it offers by using new and innovative technologies. Developing these new technologies requires a firm commitment to excellence; Bruker Daltonics has obviously made this commitment to future growth and technological advancement."

Frank Laukien, Ph.D., President and CEO of Bruker Daltonics, commented: "We are gratified by this award, and very pleased to have been recognized by Frost & Sullivan for the fifth time now in three years for our best practices in product line innovation and growth strategy. We expect our NBC product line to continue to make important contributions in U.S. and NATO defense and homeland security applications."
