Beckman Coulter, Inc. is a company that provides instruments, software, chemistry, and research supplies to laboratory researchers. The company was founded in 1935 by Dr. Arnold O. Beckman who developed the original PH meter. The company later developed DU spectrophotometer and heliport potentiometer. By the 1990s, the company had expanded its product offerings to include laboratory instruments, immunoassay, and hematology, hemostasis, flow cytometry, and diagnostics.
Beckman Coulter provides products for biomedical research analysis. The categories of these products include support reagents, human antibodies, and non-human antigens.The support reagents include secondary antibodies, isotypic controls, detection kits, ancillary reagents, high affinity molecules, fluorospheres and controls, and instrument support reagents. Beckman Coulter offers more than 700 antibodies. These antibodies are available for several target species. These antibodies are suitable for a variety of applications.
The flow cytometry line of products includes antibodies to human and non-human antigens, as well as support reagents. These products have applications in several areas of biology, including cell signaling, inflammation, stem cells, and apoptosis. The antibodies to human antigens includes multi-color reagents and single-color reagents. The company offers numerous multi-color reagents for human target species. The single-colored reagents are available in CD and non-CD. The CD1a antigen is suitable for defining thymic stage of T cells. This product includes 100 tests for human CD antibodies in liquid form. The single-color reagents are non-CD and include numerous products such as Akt, helios, IgD, and IL-3.
The antibodies to non-human antigens includes systems and kits, multi-color reagents, and antibodies to anti-mouse and anti-rat antigens. The antibodies to anti-mouse antigens includes CD95 (Fas) and non-CD products. The antibodies to anti-rat antigens includes CD45 and CD45RC.
Beckman Coulter develops several support reagents. The support reagents include instrument support reagents, detection kits, ancillary reagents, high affinity molecules, secondary antibodies, fluorospheres and controls, isotypic controls, and lysing, fixative, and permeabilizing solutions. The isotype controls are in a variety of forms including FITC, RD1, ECD, PC5, and PC7. The group of fluoroshperes and controls reagents contains setup kits for APC and PC7, the Flow-Check™ and Flow-Set™ pro fluorospheres products, the DRAQ7™ product, and DAPI viability dye.
Beckman Coulter develops manual Immunoassay Research Use Only (RUO) products that include both enzyme and radioimmunoassay. These products are suitable for drug, clinical, and basic research projects.

My other passions include grilling, wine tasting, and real food. To be honest, my biggest passion is flow cytometry, which is something that Carol and I share. My personal mission is to make flow cytometry education accessible, relevant, and fun. I’ve had a long history in the field starting all the way back in graduate school.
