Bruker buys super-res fluorescence microscopy company Vutara

Bruker (Billerica, MA) has acquired 3D super-resolution fluorescence microscopy company Vutara (Salt Lake City, UT) for an undisclosed amount. The company's estimated revenue for full-year 2014 is expected to be approximately $2 million.

The acquisition further strengthens Bruker's biological microscopy business by adding super-resolution and single-molecule localization (SML) microscopy products to their existing portfolio of multiphoton and fast, multi-point scanning confocal fluorescence microscopes, as well as atomic force microscopes. Super-resolution microscopes can break the optical diffraction limit by an order of magnitude, opening up a myriad of research opportunities in single-molecule, cellular, and neurobiology processes.
