About Beckman Coulter Life Sciences

Accelerating answers to your important questions

Our company’s heritage dates back to 1935, when Dr. Arnold Beckman founded National Technical Laboratories in California. That year, he sold 87 of his recently patented pH meters, a groundbreaking technology that could be used for everything from water quality testing to laboratory research.

Our mission today, which has changed little since 1935, is to empower those who are seeking answers to life’s important scientific and healthcare questions.

This mission embodies all our efforts to help customers get the data and answers they need, when they need them.

These answers may be important for expediting development of a new, life-saving biopharmaceutical, to help exonerate an innocent person based on DNA evidence, or to help monitor patients with chronic diseases.

If your life’s calling demands answers for these (or dozens of other) important endeavors, you need to know Beckman Coulter Life Sciences. No matter the type or scope of questions you have, we can help you get the answers you need—often faster than you thought possible.
