Money has a value only if invested in a company who has already bought in such technology and I believe Beckman Coulter is still doing it for the betterment of living.

Great machine


Average Rating 4.3

Application Area:

Clinical Flow Cytometry - LPD and Leuk panels

Very high quality reproducible results. Service is usually very fast - getting parts sometimes slower due to border issues, from USA to Canada. Machine is very easy to use.

I recommend it for the excellent performance of its flow cytometry.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:

Flow cytometry

This last-generation cytofluorimeter is an excellent instrument, very sensitive and above all with 10 colors, also with a laser also for violet. It's software is very simple and intuitive and the compensation is electronic.

Navios with autoloader is an excellent cytometer for clinical laboratories.


Average Rating 5.0

Application Area:


Navios is a easy to use, reliable instrument for ten color analysis. We use it every day, from 09:00 to 18:00 for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma immunophenotyping and CD34 counts. Beckman Coulter has an excellent technical service with well trained engineers. We use Kaluza software for analysis of our results, which is an advanced tool for analysis.

Great instrument, great service, highly reliable.


Average Rating 4.7

Application Area:

Biomarker analysis for BioPharma research

Great instrument, this is certainly a workhorse for the lab and has consistently performed above expectations. The only negatives to this instrument are the capacity for samples and the relatively large sample volumes (cell numbers) required making it somewhat low throughput; however, this was well known at the time of purchase and is not limiting at this time.
