Corporate Social Responsibility

On World Tuberculosis Day 2019, we launched a major innovation in the field of TB diagnostics. The new test (a PCR-based FluoroType MTBDR 2.0 assay) identifies TB pathogens, as well as important antibiotic resistance characteristics, in three hours.

At Bruker, we help enable manufacturers in these and other emerging areas to develop and manufacture the semiconductor chips necessary to process data faster and communicate more quickly and securely, to organize information more efficiently, and to analyze data more reliably.

Our advanced analytical technology supports scientists in developing new cancer treatments. Researchers have recently analyzed the chemical composition of fig latex to gain insight into the possible mechanisms of action by which it deactivates HPV, using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectroscopy (MS) in their analyses.

The ANPC team, led by world-renowned phenomics pioneer and academician Professor Jeremy Nicholson, has launched a major research and diagnostics project to better understand and predict variation in COVID-19 severity and determine the complex genetic, environmental and lifestyle interactions that influence its pathogenicity in individuals.

Our NMR helps honey packers, importers, exporters, beekeepers, commercial service providers and government laboratories across the globe to secure the world's honey supply and prevent adulteration of this much-loved natural remedy.

Science, more now than ever, has a crucial role to play in today's ever changing and increasingly complex world. Bruker's long history and expertize in producing high-performance scientific instruments has enabled the company to design and produce innovative technologies that play a major role in helping protect society through supporting homeland security and defense.

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the US Department of Agriculture National Wildlife Research Center used one-dimensional proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1D 1H NMR) spectroscopy to assess the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on double-crested cormorants.

Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs) are widely used throughout the world in the prevention and treatment of viral pneumonia through the belief in their potential to boost the body's resistance to the pneumonia virus and modulate its immune response. Many viruses have established sophisticated mechanisms to interact with the host immune system.

Influenza remains the predominant viral cause of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in adults. The World Health Organization estimates that annual influenza epidemics result in about 3-5 million cases of severe illness and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths worldwide.

NMR is a key method for unambiguously identifying and quantifying unknown substances such as newly emerged NPS

Our NMR assay is a powerful tool in the ongoing global battle against malaria, helping the UN achieve its 2030 goals. The ADVANCE NMR spectrometer facilitates screening to identify potential new drug candidates that reduce the viability of more drug-resistant parasites to, ultimately, stop the disease taking hold.

Using NMR spectroscopy, new research has identified the structural modifications to baicalein – the extract from the dried root of the flowering plant Chinese skullcap (S. baicalensis) – that provide significant anti-angiogenic and anti-cancer effects without associated toxicity1.

As companies and organizations across the world look for ways in which they can play their part, either alone or as part of a collaboration, in the effort to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, Bruker is extremely proud that its instruments are being used to ensure quality levels of reprocessed filtering face pieces (FFP) commonly known as facemasks.

Allied BioScience develops innovative solutions to create cleaner human environments.  They began using Bruker's Handheld XRF in 2018 to develop methods and presented their findings to predict the efficacy of an antimicrobial surface coating utilizing X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF) at IDWeek 2019.

Infectious diseases and viruses are rarely far from the headlines, particularly now as researchers and scientists across the world race to find a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. But getting such a product from the laboratory to the patient can be a lengthy and expensive process for it must first pass numerous and rigorous clinical tests.

Batteries have become essential components to human life. The world has become accustomed to the convenience of portable power - for the ever increasing range of devices such as mobile phones that are in daily use.
