News Jun 18, 2012
Bruker marks another milestone in its more than 40 year history in Russia, with grand opening of its new applications and customer support Center of Excellence in Moscow.
The new high-tech facility provides customers access to a wide range of scientific instruments for life-science and analytical applications using NMR, X-ray analysis, mass spectrometry, chromatography, molecular spectroscopy and AFM microscopy.
Several Bruker divisions have been brought together in this modern Center of Excellence, enabling optimal support of customer sales, applications and service requests, and numerous research collaborations in Russia.
Bruker's new Center of Excellence in central Moscow Bruker, a leading provider of high-performance scientific instruments and solutions for molecular and materials research as well as for industrial, clinical and applied analysis, has long been committed to Russia. Its long-standing presence in and support for the Russian research community began with initial NMR installations already in 1969.
Bruker has achieved market and/or technology leadership in many fields, including magnetic resonance (NMR, preclinical MRI, EPR), atomic force microscopy (AFM), stylus and optical metrology, X-ray diffraction and crystallography, X-ray and spark-OES elemental analysis, life-science, clinical and applied market separations and mass spectrometry, as well as infrared and Raman molecular spectroscopy.
Frank Laukien, Ph.D., the President and CEO of Bruker Corporation, participated at the grand opening of the new Center of Excellence for Bruker’s Russian customers, and commented: “Bruker has come a long way since our first projects in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance with the Academy of Sciences in 1970s. All of my Bruker colleagues and I are very excited by the new opportunities for customer collaborations, training, support and applications research in Russia offered by our outstanding new scientific and support facility here in Moscow.”
Nikolay Yakovlev, General Director of Bruker Ltd. in Russia, added: “The new Bruker Center of Excellence offers all of our Russian and CIS customers additional opportunities to explore numerous high-performance analytical instruments and cutting-edge applied solutions with our high level experts here in Moscow. This investment provides us with the infrastructure, high-performance systems and highly qualified staff to provide comprehensive scientific and engineering expertise across many life-science and analytical technologies, for the benefit of our Russian academic, government, clinical and industrial customers.”
One in Five Materials Chemistry Papers May be Wrong, Study SuggestsNews
The replicability of results from scientific studies has become a major source of concern in the research community, particularly in the social sciences and biomedical sciences. A new study that compared the results reported in thousands of papers published about the properties of metal organic framework (MOF) materials – which are prominent candidates for carbon dioxide adsorption and other separations – suggests the replicability problem should be a concern for materials researchers, too.READ MORE
Nanodiscs Catch Misfolding Proteins Red-HandedNews
When proteins misfold, accumulate and clump around insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, they kill cells. Now, researchers have obtained a structural snapshot of these proteins when they are most toxic, detailing them down to the atomic level.READ MORE
