Beckman Coulter Announces First Quarter 2008 Results
Date:4/30/2008

the first quarter, we launched the second of our five planned workcells, and we remain on schedule to launch our next generation hematology system, the DxH, in the second half of 2008. The product portfolio acquired from Dako furthers our capability in the research flow cytometry market. These new products extend our unparalleled range of industry-leading instrument systems and should help us to continue to expand our installed base."
