Support the fight against HIV/AIDS and related co-infections

More than 30 years after HIV/AIDS first appeared, there are an estimated 37 million cases worldwide with nearly 70% of HIV-positive patients living in Sub-Saharan Africa, followed by Southeast Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. The vast majority of individuals affected by HIV are in low- and middle-income countries. More than 3 million children were infected by HIV-positive mothers during pregnancy and childbirth or through breastfeeding (1).

A legacy of serving humanity

The worldwide need for effective assessment and treatment is more urgent than ever, and Beckman Coulter is part of the solution.

Beckman Coulter:

  • Helped pioneer use of flow cytometry to confront the emerging threat of HIV/AIDS in the 1980s
  • Introduced the manual CD4 counting test for use with a microscope in labs with no access to flow cytometry
  • Is moving healthcare forward by bringing more than 80 years of automation and innovation history to the clinical diagnostics laboratory, from flow cytometry to the molecular diagnostics arena
