Most of BD’s customers are science researchers, health care institutions, pharmaceutical industry, clinical labs, and the general public.  BD was among the primary companies who sold U.S.-made glass syringes.  BD also pioneered the production of hypodermic needles.  BD is currently divided into three (3) segments: BD Interventional, BD Medical, and BD Life Sciences.

Maxwell W. Becton and Fairleigh S.

BD is now a global name in medical technology with the purpose of advancing the world of health by making improvements in medical discovery, diagnostics, and delivery of care.  BD is the leader in patient and healthcare worker safety as well as the technologies that go with it to allow medical research and clinical laboratories.
