Beckman Coulter begins series of flow cytometry product launches with compact, scalable research cytometer

MARCH 13, 2009--Beckman Coulter, Inc. (Orange County, CA), announced during this week's Pittcon (Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy) its new Gallios Flow Cytometer, saying the system is the first of several product introductions it will make this year for clinical and research applications in flow cytometry. The Gallios targets researchers, though, and promises both analytical excellence and high-speed data collection. It boasts advanced optics, patented electronics design, and novel software tools for increased sensitivity and resolution in less time and at higher speeds.

Beckman Coulter says the flow cytometry system will enable researchers to see small and subtle changes in cell populations, and to accelerate data generation. Gallios aims to improve lab workflow and quality control.

"Every aspect of the Gallios design increases application performance. When combined with our broad and high quality reagent portfolio, we provide a new and powerful solution for cellular analysis, increasing productivity and improving the reliability and reproducibility of results," said Cynthia Collins, group vice president of Cellular Analysis at Beckman Coulter.

The cytometer's compact design allows laboratories to maximize space; it comes in three scaleable configurations that allow for future addition of more lasers and fluorescence detectors as the need for complex multi-color flow cytometry expands.
Collins added, "We are adding a number of exciting products to our flow cytometry portfolio this year. They are a testament to our commitment to enhancing the efficiency of flow cytometry laboratories around the globe."

Beckman Coulter says it has several other instrument, software and reagent product introductions planned for the rest of the year for both clinical and research applications in flow cytometry.
