PI Appoints Thomas Bocher as Head of Segment Marketing

Effective March 1, Dr. Thomas Bocher has taken over the responsibility at PI – Physik Instrumente – for the global business development in the field of microscopy and life sciences. Bocher brings ten years of experience with him as product and segment manager at Carl Zeiss Microscopy as well as more than six years of experience as product and segment manager at Bruker Biospin.

“I started work at PI in my new role with a great deal of pleasure and enthusiasm. The variety of precision positioning technology available from PI, together with years of experience in implementing customized solutions with a global outlook and the high motivation and expertise of all members of staff at PI, provide the best conditions for significant growth in this market segment!”, explains Bocher.

The entire field of microscopy has been in a very dynamic upward trend for some years and this also includes its subsectors super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, nearfield scanning microscopy, Raman and IR microscopy, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy. In addition to ultrahigh-resolution examination of the genome and the proteome, there has also been an increase in observing, processing, positioning in the nanometer range, which manifests itself in nanolabs, nanofabs, and 3D nanoprinting. This applies both to research and industrial application. The importance of micro- and nanopositioning in life sciences continues to increase significantly and this includes endoscopy, surgery, radiation therapy, and applications in genetic sequencing.
