JV has been formed with LabMate Asia, which has been Bruker’s distributor in India for seven years.

Bruker Daltonics and LabMate Asia are establishing a mass spectrometry joint venture called Bruker LabMate. Customer support and technical expertise hubs will be located in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai.

“We already set the customer care standards in India by which other research mass spectrometry suppliers are judged, and we see it as directly responsible for our success,” comments Ian Sanders, Ph.D., evp of Bruker Daltonics. “Adding to our training and applications strength in India is the logical next move to ensure our customers succeed as quickly as possible in this very exciting and dynamic scientific community.”

The JV is founded on a seven-year partnership between Bruker and LabMate Asia, which served as Bruker’s Indian mass-spectrometry distributor.
