Bruker has acquired a manufacturer of benchtop micro-ESR (Electron Spin Resonance) spectroscopy systems used for applied and industrial applications.

Active Spectrum's micro-ESR systems will be part of Bruker's ESR/EPR portfolio and distributed via the sales, service and channel partner networks.

The micro-ESR systems expand Bruker's existing research and product line with benchtop discrete sample or on-line ESR systems.

Dr Iris Mangelschots, president of the Bruker BioSpin Applied, Industrial and Clinical Division, said it has strengthened its expertise and leadership in benchtop and on-line ESR.

“Active Spectrum's…micro-ESR systems offer an outstanding platform to develop tailored solutions for the industrial and applied markets using very compact magnetic resonance technology​."

Active Spectrum’s miniaturized ESR technology measures free radicals and applications include analysis of the shelf life of food products and biomedical research.

ESR is used for detection of paramagnetic species and has applications in applied markets in beverage analysis and for detection of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species.

James R. White, president and co-founder of Active Spectrum, said he was ‘thrilled’ that its approach has been recognized and adopted by Bruker. 

“The addition of our micro-ESR systems to their portfolio will give our customers a wide range of options, backed by Bruker's global support and service. We are excited to continue to develop new micro-ESR applications for robust, effective and affordable benchtop solutions for applied and industrial markets."
