Cellomics Picks up Service Contracts for Beckman Coulter s Abandoned HCS Products

NEW YORK, June 13 (GenomeWeb News) - Cellomics, a unit of Fisher Biosciences, said today that it will provide maintenance and service support for customers of Beckman Coulter's high-content screening systems.

 

The agreement covers Beckman Coulter's Cell Lab IC 100 Image Cytometer and EIDAQ 100 High-Throughput Microscopy System. As GenomeWeb News' sister publication Cell-Based Assay News reported in November, the company decided to stop marketing its HCS products, but planned to continue support for its existing customers.

 

"Our primary goal in reaching this agreement was to provide ongoing support for our customers," Karen Bezold, director of research Cytometry at Beckman Coulter, said in a statement.

 

Beckman Coulter said it plans to continue to focus its research cytometry business on flow cytometry and particle characterization.
