Bruker has been awarded the iF DESIGN AWARD for three different products, ranking them among the most innovative instrumentation designers.
Prizes were awarded to the Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) spectrometers INVENIO and ALPHA II, as well as to the Fourier transform near-infrared spectroscopy (FT-NIR) spectrometer MPA II in the categories ‘Industry’ and ‘Medicine/Health’ of the discipline ‘Product Design’.
The iF DESIGN AWARD is presented once a year by the iF International Forum Design in Hannover, Germany.
The ALPHA II, INVENIO and MPA II convinced the 67 members of the international expert jury with their innovative design, integrated touch panel PC and intuitive operation.
There was a large number of candidates competing for the coveted seal of quality, which included 6375 entries from 52 countries.
Director of development at Bruker Optik Dr Roland Harig states: “Our aim was to make the operation of our systems as easy as the use of office equipment and copying machines, despite their complex structure. Due to the clear design and the integration of touch panels with graphical user interface we want to ensure even inexperienced users do not encounter barriers and begin working with the systems from the very first day.”
The product design of the awarded Bruker spectrometers has been developed in cooperation with the internationally well-known design agency yellow design in Pforzheim, Germany.
