Bruker AXS to Acquire French X-Ray Analysis-Software Firm Socabim

NEW YORK, Aug. 16 (GenomeWeb News) - Bruker AXS will acquire French X-ray analysis-software company Socabim for an undisclosed sum, the company said today.

 

Socabim has already been providing software for X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence materials analysis to Bruker AXS. Bruker plans to merge Socabim with its own French subsidiary near Paris.

 

Socabim employees are expected to remain with the company following the acquisition, which is expected to close in the first quarter of 2006.

 

"We believe that with the addition of the Socabim technology and R&D   team, our products can accelerate their 'time-to-market,' and our X-ray   systems for advanced research and process analysis [...] will be even more   powerful and user-friendly," said Frank Burgazy, managing director of Bruker AXS   and president of the French subsidiary, in a company statement.
