Bruker Corporation (Billerica, MA, USA) has completed its previously announced acquisition of Alicona Imaging GmbH (Raaba, Austria), a provider of optical-based metrology products.

Bruker provides scientific instruments and high-value analytical and diagnostic solutions that enable scientists to explore life and materials at the molecular, cellular and microscopic levels. The company’s products and solutions find application in life science molecular research, pharma, microscopy and nanoanalysis, industrial, as well as in cell biology, preclinical imaging, clinical phenomics and proteomics research and clinical microbiology. Alicona is a supplier of optical 3D surface measurement solutions for quality assurance in the lab and in production. Its key competence lies in the measurement of form and roughness of even complex, miniaturized geometries.

Alicona's optical 3D metrology products complement Bruker's microCT, stylus profiler, white-light interferometry and atomic force microscope (AFM) product suite. The combined product offering broadens Bruker's application reach and offers customers an even more comprehensive selection of complementary metrology solutions to serve their materials research, engineering and high-precision quality assurance needs.

"We are excited to add Alicona's unique technologies and strong brand to our set of metrology systems," said Dr. Mark R. Munch, Bruker NANO Group President. "Alicona has led the industry in the development of focus variation technology and has delivered high-quality metrology products and manufacturing QA/QC solutions to the market that align nicely with our own products and our strengths in industrial metrology."

"We are very pleased to join Bruker," added Dr. Stefan Scherer, co-CEO of Alicona. "We have built a strong company that delivers superior measurement solutions in laboratory and production environments, and we are looking forward to leveraging Bruker's global reach to serve an even wider customer base and help expand the Bruker portfolio to a wider set of manufacturing solutions."
