Scientific instruments provider Bruker Corp. of Billerica, Mass., has acquired Prairie Technologies Inc., a provider of fluorescence microscopy products. Specific terms were not disclosed.

Madison, Wis.-based Prairie generated revenues of approximately $11 million in 2012 and has approximately 30 employees globally. It offers a variety of life sciences products, including two-photon microscopes; multipoint scanning confocal microscopes; laser illumination sources; photoactivation, photostimulation and photoablation accessories; and synchronization and analysis software.
