Bruker Enters Partnership with Cambridge Isotope Laboratories to Further Strengthen LabScape® Portfolio of NMR Solutions

BILLERICA, Massachusetts – March 29th, 2021 – Bruker is entering a partnership with Massachusetts-based Cambridge Isotope Laboratories (CIL), formalizing a long-term relationship between the two companies and further extending Bruker capabilities to deliver end-to end service solutions to its installed customer base in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy under the LabScape® brand. By adding the industry-leading specialty solvent range from CIL to its world-class portfolio of analytical instrumentation and related consumables, Bruker can now offer full after-market care, extending customer service throughout the product lifecycle.

Selecting a consistently high purity NMR solvent with minimum batch-to-batch variation for sample preparation is essential to deliver experimental repeatability and data consistency. CIL has over 40 years of experience in manufacturing deuterated solvents and NMR reference standards. The Bruker partnership with CIL will optimize the outcomes of NMR spectroscopy analysis for all customers. The service will launch in late Q2, 2021, allowing Bruker customers to purchase deuterated NMR solvents from CIL via Bruker sales channels including the LabScape® online store.  

Maureen Duffy, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CIL, commented: “We are very excited to enter into this partnership with Bruker, who has a long-standing leadership position in NMR and an extensive worldwide distribution network. Bruker’s expertise and knowledge in NMR markets and CIL’s extensive history as a manufacturer of high-quality deuterated NMR solvents is a perfect combined platform for success. We look forward to working together to better service the NMR community.”

Andreas Kamlowski, President, Service and Life Cycle Support Division at Bruker BioSpin, added: “CIL employs strict methodologies for solvent purification and adheres to class-leading standards of chemical and isotopic purity. Through this partnership, our goal is to further strengthen the value of our customer offer through leveraging each other’s competencies and experience.”
