On-site service of your Bruker Microbiology & Diagnostics systems

Bruker strives to continue service operations as much as possible under the respective framework set by local authorities.

As many regions and countries implemented travel restrictions, that only allow emergency travel, we are forced to reduce our service operations to urgent maintenance and repair visits for

  • equipment that is used in clinical labs or related to the clinical treatment of patients
  • equipment at risk to cause harm to people or any other significant damage, if not maintained in short term.

Bruker commits to pay special attention to your and our employees’ health and safety. Therefore, we aim on servicing your Bruker system under increased safety conditions. Prior to every service visit we kindly ask you to confirm this by signing a letter. Download the letter.
