Beckman Instruments began producing centrifuges after their January 1, 1955 acquisition of industry leader, Specialized Instruments Corporation, or Spinco. With Spinco came the famous Model E Ultracentrifuge, which was developed in 1947 and was used for many important scientific discoveries of the 20th century, like the 1957 CalTech experiment that proved James Watson and Francis Crick’s theory on DNA replication.
Scintillation counters detect ionizing radiation by counting the light flashes produced by the particles as they pass through certain solids or liquids.
