NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bruker reported today that its revenues in the third quarter were down 2 percent year over year, falling to $439 million from $447.8 million in Q3 2012.

The drop was driven by weakness in the company's Energy and Semiconducting Technologies (BEST) segment, which saw revenue decline by 27 percent in the quarter.
