Bruker, Billerica, Mass., has acquired Anasys Instruments Corp., a privately held company that develops and manufactures nanoscale infrared spectroscopy and thermal measurement instruments. This acquisition adds to Bruker’s portfolio of Raman and FTIR spectrometers, as well as to its nanoscale surface science instruments, such as atomic force microscopy and white-light interferometric 3D microscopy. 

Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, Anasys has pioneered the field of nanoprobe-based thermal and infrared measurements. Its industry-leading nanoIR products are used by premier academic and industrial scientists and engineers in soft-matter and hard-matter materials science, as well as in life science applications. Recently, Anasys introduced even higher performance with ten-nanometer resolution nanoIR imaging.

“We are very excited to add this strategic, high-growth area to our portfolio of nanoscale microscopy and spectroscopy measurement products,” says Dr. Mark R. Munch, President of the Bruker Nano Group. “There are tremendous application and technology synergies that will benefit our customers.”

“We are very happy to have found a company like Bruker to take the business to the next level,” added Roshan Shetty, co-founder and former CEO of Anasys. “We feel that Bruker’s history in innovative instrument research, and Bruker’s global reach will build on our own history of unique and pioneering achievements in thermal and nanoIR measurements.”

In close cooperation with customers, Bruker is enabling innovation, productivity and customer success in life-science molecular research, in applied and pharma applications, and in microscopy, nano-analysis, and industrial applications. In recent years, Bruker has also become a provider of high-performance systems for cell biology, preclinical imaging, clinical phenomics and proteomics research, clinical microbiology, and for molecular pathology research.
