They selected the company from Jena as one of the 10 leading international manufacturers in China in 2008. "Our development in Asia and especially in China is very successful. In the current fiscal year, for the first time China will hold the top position in sales. The vote of the Chinese experts will help us continue to grow the market, "said Klaus Berka, CEO of Analytik Jena AG. Also in the evaluation of individual instruments Analytik Jena was chosen. The TOC / TOX analyzer multi x 2500 was considered one of the best new instruments in 2008 and received an award. It was assigned by Chinese experts appointed by the conference committee.

This is a very positive development; even in difficult macro economic times," concluded Klaus Berka.
