Bruker Corporation develops and manufactures NMR, EPR, MRI, FT-IR, mass spectrometry, and x-ray equipment. The company also develops and distributes laboratory informatics software solutions for industries that utilize that equipment.


In March 2019, Bruker Corporation announced that it had acquired Arxspan, LLC and its laboratory informatics solutions. It wasn't clear at the time how Arxspan would operate due to the acquisition, but the company is presumably operating as a division of Bruker.[1]
