To ensure a smooth transition and continuity of operations, service will continue to be supported by Bruker local offices until further notice.

Under Varian, these GC and GC-MS systems and CDS software became a leader in the petro, petrochemical and energy sectors by developing innovative solutions to meet their demanding requirements. In recent years, Bruker has invested a great deal of effort and resources to re-develop and create the Scion range offering world class applications in industrial and research markets. Scion Instruments will now support these products with a dedicated team that will focus 100% on ensuring that customers remain delighted with their technical and applications support.”

Mr. Chris O’Connor, CEO of Techcomp Europe Ltd and acting CEO Scion Instruments added, “We are extremely pleased to add this renowned USA business to our portfolio of established European brands. This continues to consolidate our international expansion programme of investing in leading analytical technologies following our recent acquisition of Edinburgh Instruments Ltd. in 2013. We are also very positive about inheriting a number of key industry experts that will form the core of the Scion Instruments leadership team.”

Scion Instruments will maintain a global infrastructure to support sales outside of the USA.
