Bruker BioSpin buys Superconductor Business. (Executive briefing: news, trends & market intelligence for instrument executives).
Morgan Crucible will also receive 10% of higher temperature superconducting product sales for each year until 2011, or until a maximum amount of 20 million [euro] is reached. Bruker BioSpin was a customer of the company as well as of other suppliers. Because of the fact that the magnetic resonance business is so concentrated, its backward vertical integration strategy seems quite appropriate. In recent years, the number of vendors in the field have acquired probe technology for many of the same reasons. New markets for high-temp superconductors include magnetic levitation, energy storage, fast electronics and ultra-high field magnets.
