Analytik Jena AG received at the beginning of the new fiscal year the acceptance of a contract for several CDC (Center for Disease Control and prevention) projects in China. In six provinces in China, Analytik Jena will provide analytical instruments. Overall, the German based producer of highly innovative equipment will deliver 90 instruments. The scope of supply includes Atomic-Absorption-Spectrometer 41 ZEEnit, 43 UVVIS Spectrofotometer Specord and 6 Sum Parameters Instruments multi N/C. The order volume amounts to more than 2.5 Mio Euro. The instruments are used to equip CDC centres in Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, and Gansu.

The CEO of Analytik Jena, Klaus Berka, comments as follows: "These contracts are further steps to strengthen our presence in the Asian market. Specifically in the emerging markets the products of Analytik Jena prove to be highly competitive and our distribution network is very efficient."

The products come from analytical solutions, the strongest business unit of Analytik Jena. The unit produces classical analytical systems based on optical spectroscopy and elemental analysis. Torsten Olschewski, vice president Sales, Service and Marketing outlines the importance of China in the future development: "China has already become our biggest foreign sales market. To gain further market share in China is a strategic mission for Analytik Jena in the near future. Signing the deal is an important step forward."
