MIRO Analytical complements the Bruker Optics gas-analysis spectroscopy portfolio with fast, compact, highest-precision QCL multi-trace gas analyzers. MIRO anticipates 2023 revenue of ~$2.5 million and expects to grow rapidly in high-precision, simultaneous trace gas analysis markets with a TAM of greater than $100 million annually. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.

MIRO’s portfolio consists of compact QCL-based trace gas analyzers with highest precision for fast measurements of up to 10 trace gases simultaneously, and sensitivity at the ppt level. MIRO MGAs have applications in mobile monitoring of greenhouse gas and pollution sources to stationary air-quality monitoring. MIRO’s customers include leading climate scientists from research institutes such as German Space Agency, Research Center Jülich and French INRAE, with MGAs deployed in mobile labs in aircrafts or vehicles, in remote research stations and for laboratory experiments. MIRO’s products complement Bruker OMEGA and Matrix MG spectroscopic gas analyzers, with MIRO’s automated, compact, high-precision MGAs for real-time trace gas monitoring.

Dr. Morten Hundt, CEO of MIRO Analytical AG, commented: “We are delighted to become part of the Bruker family. MIRO and Bruker together are a perfect fit – we share the vision as a high-quality solutions provider in trace gas analysis.
