Bruker Acquires Microscopy Firm

Department: Business
Keywords: microscopy, acquisition, scientific instrumentation

Scientific instrument maker Bruker has acquired University of Utah spin-off Vutara, a maker of 3-D, super-resolution fluorescence microscopes. Bruker says the business will have revenues of $2 million this year. Five-year-old Vutara adds to ­Bruker’s existing microscopy business, which includes atomic force microscopes as well as multiphoton and fast, multipoint scanning confocal fluorescence microscopes. Vutara’s microscopes open research opportunities in single-molecule, live-cell, and neurobiology processes, Bruker says.
