Bruker Corp. designs, manufactures, services and markets proprietary life science and materials research systems based on its technology platforms, including magnetic resonance technologies, mass spectrometry technologies, gas chromatography technologies, X-ray technologies, spark-optical emission spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, stylus and optical metrology technology and infrared and Raman molecular spectroscopy technologies.
It sells a broad range of field analytical systems for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive, or CBRNE, detection.
The company also develops and manufactures low temperature and high temperature superconducting wire products and superconducting wire and superconducting devices for use in advanced magnet technology, physics research and energy applications.
It organized into four operating segments: the Bruker BioSpin group, the Bruker CALID group, the Bruker MAT group, and Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies.
The Bruker BioSpin group segment is in the business of designing, manufacturing and distributing enabling life science tools based on magnetic resonance technology.
The Bruker CALID group segment is in the business of designing, manufacturing, and distributing mass spectrometry and chromatography instruments and solutions for life sciences, including proteomics, metabolomics, and clinical research applications.
Its mass spectrometry and chromatography instruments also provide solutions for applied markets that include food safety, environmental analysis and petrochemical analysis.
Bruker CALID also designs, manufactures, and distributes various analytical instruments for CBRNE detection and research, as well as analytical, research and process analysis instruments and solutions based on infrared and Raman molecular spectroscopy technologies.
The Bruker MAT group segment is in the business of manufacturing and distributing advanced analytical X-ray technologies and spark-optical emission spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and stylus and optical metrology instrumentation used in non-destructive molecular, materials and elemental analysis.
The Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies segment is in the business of developing and producing low temperature superconductor and high temperature superconductor materials for use in advanced magnet technology and energy applications as well as linear accelerators, accelerator cavities, insertion devices, other accelerator components and specialty superconducting magnets for physics and energy research and a variety of other scientific applications.
The company was founded by Günther Laukien and Emil Bruker in 1960 and is headquartered in Billerica, MA.
