Top subject: Lab automation
You have possibly already thought about which working routines can be simplified with intelligent software solutions. These solutions are often classified as being too expensive or too complicated. However, in many cases, timesaving solutions can be realised with existing material currently available. Most JULABO instruments have a built-in serial RS232 interface. An adapter cable is also available for the connection to a USB interface. The available free of charge software ‘EasyTemp’ offers diverse possibilities for controlling, programming as well as for recording measured values.
Indication of the temperature value on the PC
Entering of the set value directly on the PC
Indication of the relevant heating/cooling capacity
Independently scaleable graphics by zoom functions
Cyclic repetition of the programmed profiles
Recording of measured values
Data exportation in ASCII format (e.g. for Excel)
Conclusion: Already our cost-effective solutions offer many advantages. The software installation and the connection of circulator to PC do not require specialised knowledge. The operation of the software is easily understandable. Further considerations are made, if several units are to be networked. To enable this, JULABO offers hard/software solutions for the installation of networks with Profibus, RS485, Devicenet, Ethernet, etc.

Our Delivery Times Can't Be Beat!
We know that when you order equipment from us, you often needed it "yesterday." That's why we strive very hard to keep a large inventory on hand to meet customer demand. Keith Ferrier with Refer Scientific, had this to say when asked about his service from OFI Testing Equipment, "OFITE is without doubt the best supplier we deal with. Your stockholding and delivery times are better than any company we deal with. I don't know how you do it."
Since implementing a customer feedback program in March 2003, over 97% of our customers have been satisfied with the delivery times of their new products and over 98% of our customers have rated their overall satisfaction with their new product purchase "good" to "excellent." Thank you all for your feedback and loyal patronage!

Bruker BioSciences Announces Post-Merger Restructuring; Company to Consolidate Certain Production Sites While Strengthening Sales and Customer Support
BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 20, 2003--Bruker BioSciences Corporation (NASDAQ:BRKR) today announced a plan to consolidate two of its smaller production facilities with existing larger production facilities in the U.S. and Europe. This restructuring has already been partially implemented and is expected to be finalized in the second quarter of 2004.
Following the July 1st, 2003 merger of Bruker Daltonics and Bruker AXS, Bruker BioSciences has analyzed additional opportunities to drive its operating performance. The restructuring plan announced here goes beyond the original merger plan, and reflects the Company's commitment to cost-cutting and bottom-line improvement.
As part of the restructuring, the Bruker AXS business will consolidate its life sciences x-ray systems production in Madison, Wisconsin (USA), and will outsource or transfer to its other production centers the manufacturing of certain Bruker-Nonius technologies. Bruker-Nonius, a subsidiary of Bruker AXS located in Delft, The Netherlands, will strengthen its focus on applications and product development for life science x-ray crystallography and structural proteomics, as well as on marketing and customer support.
In addition, the Bruker Daltonics business will phase out manufacturing of substance detection products at its Faellanden, Switzerland site by the end of the second quarter of 2004. Due to this overall manufacturing consolidation, Bruker BioSciences expects to improve its operating performance by $2.5-3.0 million p.a. pre-tax, beginning in the third quarter of 2004.
Bruker BioSciences incurred associated restructuring costs of approximately $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2003, including non-cash charges for the write-down of goodwill and intangible assets of $1.2 million. These restructuring costs are separate from any anticipated special charges which were previously discussed in our S-4 filing in connection with the merger, including merger charges for acquired research and development, merger related costs and impairment of acquired assets.
"With the completion of the merger, we are pushing forward with a number of initiatives designed to further drive our top- and bottom-line growth," said Frank Laukien, President and CEO of Bruker BioSciences. "Beyond the merger synergies that we had discussed previously, we saw an opportunity for additional cost savings by improving our overall manufacturing efficiency. At the same time, we continue to gradually expand our global sales and customer support capabilities, commensurate with our growth objectives."
Martin Haase, President and CEO of Bruker AXS and Senior Vice President of Bruker BioSciences, commented: "We believe this restructuring is an important step towards improved efficiency of operations at Bruker BioSciences. This plan is expected to reduce our fixed cost of operations as well as overhead costs significantly, and is designed to improve our gross and operating margins. We maintain our strong focus on R&D and product innovation, which is the key to our future top- and bottom-line growth."
