By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bruker has opened its Singapore Center of Excellence, located at the Helios in Biopolis, Singapore's biomedical research and development hub.

Bruker Singapore provides sales and after-sales support for Southeast Asia and contains a regional applications and customer training center equipped with Bruker systems. It also provides business and financial services for Bruker's operations in the region.

"With this major investment in our new Center of Excellence, Bruker Singapore has taken a major step forward to provide highest level support and collaboration capabilities for our research, biopharma, clinical, and advanced materials, and industrial customers in Southeast Asia," Bruker President and CEO Frank Laukien said in a statement.

Bruker Singapore has a staff of approximately 45 and expects to hire between 10 and 20 additional staff as the business expands.

"As Singapore grows as a science and biomedical research hub, we want to facilitate its development by providing our equipment and expertise to our customer-partners through our presence here," George Tang, general manager of Bruker Singapore, said. "We have recently entered the field of microbiology here in Singapore and are excited to see the latest proteomic microbial identification technology now supporting better clinical decisions in infectious disease management."
