BD’s History & Leadership

Our History and Leadership in Flow Cytometers

BD Biosciences introduced the first-ever commercial FACS instrument in 1974 and has remained at the forefront of flow cytometry since.

At BD Biosciences, we believe that developing products is not just a business; it’s a partnership that we forge with our customers.


Flexibility at its core

From basic research to developing and testing solutions for clinical and diagnostics use, we are here to support your efforts by providing a broad portfolio of flow cytometry instruments. We offer an array of options, from simple cell sorters with a few parameters to isolate cells to sophisticated flow cytometers equipped with up to 60 parameters to define and support subpopulations of cells or to analyze rare cell populations with outstanding resolution. Our custom solutions support your specific requirements and desired quantities. 

Expertise and training

Our expertise in multicolor flow cytometry, combined with our online and classroom trainings, enable you to obtain the flow cytometry results needed to advance your research.


Expanding global access to the power of flow cytometry

Our global presence enables us to equip customers around the world with the same reliable and trustworthy flow cytometry instruments that we are known for. 


Pushing the limits of discovery 

Our cell analyzers and sorters, along with our enormous range of flow cytometry reagents and software and informatics tools, help you to expand what you can achieve with flow cytometry. Our high-performing flow cytometers equip you for a broad of range of clinical and research applications, including measurement of CD4 counts in HIV patients, residual white blood cells in blood transfusions, CD34+ hematopoietic cells for stem cell transplantation, and many more basic and clinical research targets. We are here to support you.
