Abstract:
Bruker today announced that it has acquired Hysitron, Inc., a technology leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of nanomechanical test instrumentation. The acquisition adds Hysitronís innovative nanomechanical testing instruments to Brukerís existing portfolio of atomic force microscopes (AFMs), surface profilometers, and tribology and mechanical testing systems, significantly enhancing Brukerís leadership position in nanomaterials research markets. Hysitronís 2016 revenues were approximately $20 million. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

Bruker Announces Acquisition of Nanoindenting Leader Hysitron: Acquisition strengthens Brukerís leading position in nanoanalysis and nanomechanical materials characterization

Billerica, MA | Posted on January 24th, 2017

Headquartered in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, privately-held Hysitronģ has pioneered solutions to measure mechanical properties of materials at the nanoscale since 1992. Its industry-leading nanoindentation products are used by premier academic and industrial researchers and engineers in materials science, the life sciences, and semiconductor applications. In addition to nanoindentation and microindentation, Hysitron's instrument capabilities include tribology, modulus mapping, dynamic mechanical analysis, and in-situ SEM (scanning electron) and TEM (transmission electron) nanomechanical testing.

ďHysitron has been recognized as the global market and technology leader in the field of nanomechanical property measurements for quite some time,Ē said Mark R. Munch, Ph.D., President of the Bruker NANO Group. ďAs a leader in atomic force microscopy instrumentation, we plan to realize a number of valuable application synergies by adding Hysitronís instruments to our Bruker NANO Group nanoscale surface and materials characterization product portfolio. In addition, Hysitronís products are quite complementary to our macroscale mechanical and tribology test instruments, providing the most complete range of testing capabilities to the market.Ē

ďWe have built a strong reputation at Hysitron for truly top-level instrumentation that pushes the limits of nanoindenting technology, but have been looking to leverage the strengths of a larger global organization to help bring these capabilities to their full potential,Ē added Thomas Wyrobek, CEO and Co-Founder of Hysitron, Inc. ďWith Brukerís great commitment to research and their long history of academic collaboration, we are excited about the ways they can provide the global infrastructure and processes that we have always wanted, while maintaining intense focus on developing the best possible solutions to enable our customersí success.Ē
