Bruker AXS to Receive 750,000 from Dutch Government for Research Collaboration

NEW YORK, Jan. 22 (GenomeWeb News) - Bruker AXS expects to receive 750,000 ($953,000) over three years from the Dutch government to participate in a Dutch molecular imaging research consortium, the company said today.


Madison, Wis.-based Bruker AXS, a subsidiary of Bruker BioSciences, will be part of the Cyttron consortium, a EUR17.6 million research project that is funded in half by the government of the Netherlands.


The consortium aims to integrate data from X-ray crystallography, transmission electron microscopy, visible light microscopy, scanning microscopy, and NMR and make these techniques more compatible with each other.


Academic participants - The University of Leiden, the Leiden University Medical Center, the Technical University Delft, the University of Utrecht, Imperial College London, and the University of Antwerp - are joined by three companies; Delft-based Bruker AXS-subsidiary Bruker Nonius, FEI of Eindhoven, and KeyDP of Leiden.
