Nanostring Technologies to Be Acquired by Bruker Corporation


Seattle-based research device maker Nanostring Technologies has found a new buyer. Nanostring announced plans to be acquired by the scientific instrument company Bruker Corp. for about $392.6M in a deal expected to close in early May.

“As a global leader in the life science analytical instrument industry, Bruker is uniquely positioned to ensure ongoing customer access to Nanostring’s innovations,” Nanostring CEO Brad Gray said in a news release. “The sale to Bruker will also bring about a swift conclusion of our restructuring process.”
