Oct 14 2016 Comments 0

Analytik Jena AG (Germany) and the private Fresenius University of Applied Sciences are setting up a joint application center for customers for both teaching and research at the university’s site in Idstein in Hessen, Germany. They signed a three-way cooperation agreement with the Wesemann laboratory furnishing company, which provides modern and flexible laboratory furniture of the LABterminal series. Under the agreement, Analytik Jena is making available six analytical instruments with a total value of approximately EUR 500,000 for use in water, environmental, food, and pharmaceutical analysis. The Fresenius University of Applied Sciences is reserving the appropriate laboratory infrastructure at the site. The laboratory will be constructed, set up, and put into service in the coming weeks. In October 2016, the dedication and festive inauguration of the application center are planned together with a scientific lecture program.

“We aspire to continuously expand our network, which combines our expertise and services for our customers. With the new application center, Analytik Jena is responding to growing demand for consulting, seminar, and training opportunities in the Frankfurt am Main economic region,” says Klaus Berka, Chief Executive Officer of Analytik Jena AG.

The future cooperation between Analytik Jena AG and the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences will also extend to the areas of student training and continuing education as well as research and development. “Teaching and research are reaching a new dimension,” says Prof. Dr. Thomas Knepper, Vice President for the Chemistry and Biology departments at the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. “With the new high-end equipment, we are setting a milestone in the area of analysis and are among the best-equipped universities in all of Germany, as measured by available laboratory space.”

Along with students and technical and vocational pupils, two research divisions of the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences also use the equipment. Within the framework of the cooperation, the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences and Analytik Jena are currently discussing potential joint research projects. “We are looking forward to our collaboration with the Fresenius University of Applied Sciences. It will provide new stimulus for us as a technology company,” says Klaus Berka.
