Bruker AXS Microanalysis GmbH announces the change of its name to Bruker
Nano GmbH with immediate effect.
The decision for this name change was motivated not only by the ever
increasing applications of the Company's traditional products, such as EDS and
EBSD analysis systems for electron microscopes and X-ray fluorescence
spectrometers, in various fields of nanotechnology, but also by the fact that
the Company's product portfolio now includes a range of atomic force microscopes
(AFM) for surface characterization on the nanometer and sub-nanometer scale.
Bruker Nano intends to leverage its greater combined global resources for all of
its product lines in order to provide even better support and service for its
diversified research and industrial customer base.
"While we shall of course continue to serve our customers in our core
technology platforms of EDS, EBSD and µ-XRF, this name change emphasizes our
broader strategic focus on solutions for nanotechnology," said Mr. Thomas
Schuelein, Managing Director of Bruker Nano GmbH and Co-President of Bruker AXS
Inc. He continued: "Providing instrumentation and solutions dedicated to this
rapidly developing market will be the foundation of Bruker Nano's future product
