Release date- 06082019 - Merck, a leading science and technology company, has acquired BSSN Software, a Darmstadt, Germany-based laboratory informatics company that makes data more readily accessible for ease of integration, collaboration, analysis and long-term archiving.
'BSSN Software and the capabilities that it brings will allow Merck's customers to better use and share their scientific data - the most important part of laboratory experiments,' said Jean-Charles Wirth, head of Applied Solutions at the Life Science business sector of Merck.
BSSN Software is known for developing and marketing data management and integration software that unifies data from instruments and data systems and makes them available for analyzing, processing and sharing.
Since 2014, Merck has been working with BSSN Software, which primarily served pharmaceutical and food and beverage customers and provided services to facilitate standard laboratory efforts.
Merck is committed to the continued development and support of the current BSSN Software product portfolio, its customers and partnerships, as well as an open ecosystem building on the AnIML standard and Standardization in Lab Automation.
The National Science Foundation has made commitments to the BSSN
and ELOKA; Environment Canada provided pilot funding for the Canadian Community Monitoring Network (CCMN); and the Government of Canada supported the Circumpolar Flaw Lead Study during the IPY, which included a focus on TK and the links between "two ways of knowing" about flaw leads and the marine ecosystem (Pulsifer et al., 2012).
