Bruker Opens Facility in Shanghai

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bruker on Thursday announced the opening of an applications, training, and service center in Shanghai.

The new facility, Bruker said, offers its customers access to a multi-technology applications, training, and demonstration Center of Excellence to support research collaborations in China, a market that generates about $100 million in revenues annually for the company.

The new center complements Bruker's previous major applications and customer support center in Beijing, which will be expanded by about 50 percent. Bruker also anticipates opening an additional sales and service office in Guangzhou later this year.

Earlier this week, the firm announced that it had opened its Singapore Center of Excellence, located at the Helios in Biopolis, Singapore's biomedical research and development hub.
